Saturday May 23rd, 7:00 p.m. Special Sneak Preview Fine Cut Screening of Jay Craven’s newest film PETER AND JOHN, filmed on Nantucket and starring Jacqueline Bisset.

“Peter and John” was shot fully on Nantucket during the spring of 2014. Craven, a Woods Hole Film Festival alumnus and 2013 Filmmaker-in-Residence, wrote and directed the picture, based on a novel by 19th Century French writer Guy de Maupassant. The novel was credited with breaking new ground in psychological characterization and it influenced writers ranging from Tolstoy to Nabokov. Vincent van Gogh also cited its vivid descriptions of seaside locations as an inspiration to his paintings.

The film is set in 1872 Nantucket, when reverberations from the Civil War were still in the air. It tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives word of an unexpected and strange inheritance—and both boys become interested in a mysterious young woman who arrives on their island. “Peter and John” stars 2014 Golden Globe winner Jacqueline Bisset (“Bullitt,” “Day for Night”), Emmy winner and Tony nominee Gordon Clapp (“NYPD Blue,” “Matewan,” “Glengarry Glen Ross”), Christian Coulson (“Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets,” “Love is Strange,” “The Hours”), Shane Patrick Kearns (“Blue Collar Boys”), and Diane Guerrero (“Orange is the New Black,” “Jane the Virgin”).

Director Jay Craven will attend the screening to introduce the film and lead post-screening discussion. The Falmouth preview screening is being presented as a special event by The Woods Hole Film Festival. Comments from the screening may be used to make final revisions to the picture.
