Parents need to know that Long Weekend is a romantic drama that aims to dispel the stigma around mental health struggles. The story follows Bart (Finn Wittrock), a writer who's recovering from a psychiatric breakdown and is lifted out of his lingering depression by an energetic, adorable stranger named Vienna (Zoe Chao). Characters speak openly and without shame about getting treatment for mental health issues, and there's a clear takeaway about intervening if someone you care about starts to become "untethered." Both main characters discuss the loss of a parent to cancer. Bart and Vienna's brief romance has plenty of flirtatious sexual interactions; they rip off their clothes in a moment of passion and prance around the house in their underwear, but there's no nudity, and they're not actually depicted having sex. Bart demonstrates behavior indicative of a dependency on alcohol, but Vienna encourages him to drink more: They go on an outright bender and never show signs of intoxication. Language is strong throughout ("s--t," "f--k"), including parents swearing frequently in front of their small children.
