The dialogue is minimalistic, and most of it courtesy of Lucinda's cruel taunts that cut like a knife. But even those moments are never fully explored.

Too much goes unsaid and too many issues are unresolved. The scenery is nice, but "Five Nights in Maine" just isn't worth the trip.

Curran guides the cast to commendable performances across the board, with Oyelowo and Wiest delivering controlled, nuanced work to fill in the script's generous negative space.

We're left to guess how they feel at the beginning of the film and we don't learn much more by the end.
