About the Movie
While grieving over the tragic death of his beloved wife, Sherwin (David Oyelowo) travels from Atlanta to Maine in order to meet his abrasive, estranged mother-in-law Lucinda (Dianne Wiest). Sherwin's late wife (Hani Furstenberg) had a rocky relationship with her terminally ill mother, which culminated in a trip that ended in confrontation just prior to the wife's fatal accident. Lucinda and Sherwin attempt to connect and mend their broken hearts in this touching drama. Maris Curran's debut feature received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Curran's tasteful, challenging yet ultimately inscrutable debut feature never quite lives up to the caliber of her fine cast.
Rotten: The dreary postmortem drama "Five Nights in Maine" is barely kept afloat by the gravitas of dueling leads David Oyelowo and Dianne Wiest.
Rotten: Intriguing parts, underwhelming whole.
Rotten: The effect is a series of vignettes that fail to hold attention even though the movie clocks in at a merciful 83 minutes.
