Five Nights in MaineAbout the Film
Showcasing the talents of two of the best actors working today, writer/director Maris Curran presents a tender drama about two injured souls, thrown together by the death of someone they both loved. After Sherwin (David Oyelowo, who also serves as a producer) loses his wife, Fiona, in an accident, he accepts an invitation to visit her mother, Lucinda (Dianne Wiest), in Maine. But far from providing solace, acerbic Lucinda keeps him—and everyone else—at bay. Despite receiving an icy reception, Sherwin decides to spend five days with Lucinda in an effort to seek answers and, perhaps, find understanding.
