Days and Nights(2014) stills (x)

DAYS AND NIGHTS is writer/director Christian Camargo’s directorial debut, inspired by Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” and set in rural New England in 1984.

The film centers around a fading movie star (Allison Janney), who brings her paramour to her lakeside estate to visit her ailing brother (William Hurt) and fledgling artist son (Ben Whishaw). While the eccentric family and their caretakers (portrayed by an international ensemble cast including Katie Holmes, Cherry Jones, Russell Means, Michael Nyqvist, Jean Reno, Juliet Rylance, and Mark Rylance) gather to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, reckless desire wreaks havoc and a disastrous turn of events leads the family from dysfunction to heartbreak. In true Chekhovian fashion, comedy and tragedy collide for a profound look at the volatile and fragile nature of love.
