The USCB Center for the Arts presents the film “Days and Nights” on Monday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.
“Days and Nights,” writer and director Christian Camargo’s directorial debut, inspired by the Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” is set in rural New England in the 1980’s. 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.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 seniors, and $7 for students. The Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort, SC, 29902. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
