Mother-in-law visits are always unpleasant, especially after your wife’s death.

Once again, David Oyelowo is showing more intense acting chops with the upcoming FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE.

In this film, Oyelowo plays Sherwin, a man who lost his wife in a tragic car accident. He is called to Maine by his estranged and sick mother-in-law Lucinda (played by Dianne Wiest). Grappling with a lifetime of disagreements, the pair must come to terms to cope with their failures and grief in this quiet journey of empathy, compassion and healing.

Rosie Perez and Teyonah Paris also stars in the directorial debut from Maris Curran.

FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE opens in select theaters and on VOD on August 5.
