Inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull and set in rural New England in the 1980s, Days and Nights stars Allison Janney as Elizabeth, a movie star who brings her paramour Peter (first-time director Christian Camargo) to her lakeside estate to visit her family on Memorial Day weekend. Their eccentric, off-the-wall household includes her ailing brother (William Hurt), her artist son (Ben Whishaw), his ethereal muse (Juliet Rylance), the family doctor (Jean Reno), 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 attempts to raise its young. During the weekend a disastrous turn of events leads the family from dysfunction to heartbreak and, ultimately, salvation.
