Story


"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 the 1980s. The film centers around Elizabeth (Allison Janney), a movie star, who brings her paramour Peter (Christian Camargo) to her lakeside estate to visit her family on Memorial Day weekend. The household includes her ailing brother (William Hurt), her artist son (Ben Whishaw), his ethereal muse (Juliet Rylance), the family doctor (Jean Reno) and the estate's custodian (Russell Means), the careless caretaker (Michael Nyqvist) and his wife (Cherry Jones), their temperamental daughter (Katie Holmes) and her long suffering ornithologist husband (Mark Rylance) -- the keeper of the sacred land where a bald eagle is trying to raise its young. During the weekend a disastrous turn of events leads the family from dysfunction to heartbreak and, ultimately, salvation.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..to quote the unexpectedly insightful Elizabeth: "It's all so beautifully boring"..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..it's based on Anton Chekhov's immortal "The Seagull," and though the bird is now an eagle, the plot hasn't changed much..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
