Faces & Names: Wiest, Perez join Oyelowo in ‘Maine’

Two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest (“Bullets Over Broadway”) and Oscar-nominated actress Rosie Perez (“Fearless”) will join David Oyelowo (“Selma”) in the upcoming indie “Five Nights in Maine,” which will co-star Teyonah Parris (“Mad Men”), Tony Award nominee Stephen Henderson (“The Newsroom”) and Hani Furstenberg (“The Loneliest Planet”).

Maris Curran is writing and directing the movie, which follows Sherwin (Oyelowo), a man reeling from the tragic loss of his wife, who travels to rural Maine to seek answers from his estranged mother-in-law (Wiest), who is herself confronting guilt over her daughter’s death.

“Five Nights in Maine” is billed as a story about worlds colliding at the kitchen sink.
