Jay Craven’s 2016 seaside drama film, “Peter and John” will screen at Next Stage as part of its [FRAMED] hosted-film series on Friday, September 27 at 7pm.

Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill in downtown Putney, VT.

“Peter and John” marks Jay Craven’s eighth narrative film based in New England.

“Peter and John” is based on the 19th century novel “Pierre et Jean” by Guy de Maupassant and it’s set in 1872 Nantucket, during the island’s “ghost period” — after the decline of whaling, before the rise of tourism, and in the New England shadow of the Civil War. The film tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of an unexpected inheritance — and both brothers become attracted to the same young woman who arrives on their island.

Maupassant’s novel was widely credited for helping to change the course of narrative fiction through its detailed psychological characterizations. Tolstoy and Nabokov both cited the novel as an influence. In a letter to his brother Theo, Vincent Van Gogh cited Maupassant for the visual power of the novel’s detailed seaside setting. Henry James wrote, “Monsieur de Maupassant has never before been so clever” and he called Pierre et Jean a “masterly little novel” for its potent themes of family, status, self-discovery and the lengths to which someone will go to reveal or suppress the truth.

“Peter and John” stars 2014 Golden Globe winner Jacqueline Bisset (“Bullitt,” Truffaut’s “Day for Night”); Christian Coulson (“The Hours,” “Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets,” “Nashville”); Shane Patrick Kearns (“Blue Collar Boys”); Diane Guerrero (“Orange is the New Black,” “Jane the Virgin”); and Emmy-winner Gordon Clapp (“NYPD Blue,” “Matewan,” “Eight Men Out,” “Glengarry Glen Ross”).
