Following announcements of Amin Palangi’s Tennessine and Craig Boreham’s Lonesome, Breathless Films have announced that the recently established production company’s third film, The Longest Weekend, from director Molly Haddon, writer/producer Jorrden Daley and producer Rebecca Yates has completed production.

Starring Mia Artemis (Netflix’s Sweet Tooth and upcoming Pieces of Her), Elly Hiraani Clapin, Adam Golledge, Tammy MacIntosh and John Batchelor, the film follows three siblings who unexpectedly converge on the family home while their mother is away, and discover that their abusive father is trying to connect with youngest brother Rio.

Described as “a raw and tender film about the healing power of speaking the unspoken and finding a way to move beyond your circumstances,” the film is shot by Jack Shepherd.

“I wanted to make a film that was relatable, that people could see themselves in, even in the smallest of ways,” says Director Molly Haddon. “But it’s an emotional piece that touches on some very raw elements that everyone feels but tries to avoid. Holding yourself accountable, recognising your flaws, trying to change is never easy. Our actors had to delve deep. They brought these characters to life with their dedication and their honesty, and I’m so grateful for that.”
