Reckless desire wreaks havoc over Memorial Day weekend as a family confronts the volatile and fragile nature of love. Inspired by Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull," set in rural New England in 1984.
The film received overwhelming negative reviews and holds a 0% fresh rate at Rotten Tomatoes.
Ken Rudolph recognized that the actors were splendid, but the film seemed trite, and pretentious.
The film critic Thorsten Krüger considers that Camargo "has nothing to tell and nothing to say." The film "intends to be profound, but offers too little to be interessant".
The cast, so packed with talent that Jean Reno and Cherry Jones barely register, is stuck with stagey dialogue. Juliet Rylance, in the Nina part, has a particularly hard time.The World Cinema Now Program reviewed the film as: "Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull has seen numerous iterations over the decades, but actor/director Christian Camargo (The Hurt Locker) is able to honor the darkness and depth of this Russian tragedy while relocating it to a Memorial Day weekend in rural New England and putting his own contemporary spin on the material. With a haunting score, lovely cinematography, and strong performances from a remarkable ensemble cast, we see a family come together then fracture apart over the course of one disastrous weekend."
The New York Times commented that "“The Seagull,” with its depiction of fin de siècle ennui, has been hollowed out and trivialized. So little time is given to the subsidiary characters in “Days and Nights” that, at times, the movie barely makes sense. The avian symbol has been changed from a sea gull to a bald eagle. What remains is a cracked shell."
