Leighton Meester dips her toes in the pulpy ‘Woman in the Window’/’Girl on the Train’ suspense-thriller waters and makes it out relatively unscathed. It’s not eminently memorable and relies on a few too many contrivances to be considered an unqualified success, but as movies like this go, it’s not terrible. Not a ringing endorsement to be sure, but if you’re looking for a decent twisty whodunnit, ‘The Weekend Away’ does just fine.

2.5/5 stars
