David Oyelowo & Dianne Wiest Star in 'Five Nights in Maine' Trailer
"Why did you come here? Trying to see what she was hiding from?" FilmRise has released the first trailer for an indie drama called Five Nights in Maine, starring David Oyelowo and Dianne Wiest. Oyelowo plays a man struggling to cope with the tragic loss of his wife, who travels to rural Maine to meet his wife's estranged mother, who is also struggling with grief and guilt. The full cast includes Rosie Perez, Teyonah Parris and Bill Raymond. This looks like a very emotional film that deals with some tough topics in a very raw, very powerful but earnest way. It has played at festivals all over and definitely seems worth seeing.
