Our second Movies from Marlboro film, Peter and John, based on the 19th seaside story by Guy de Maupassant, was filmed on location in Nantucket in March, April and May 2014. Peter and John stars 2014 Golden Globe winner Jacqueline Bisset (Bullitt, Truffaut’s Day for Night, Chabrol’s Le Ceremonie), Christian Coulson (Harry Potter, Chamber of Secrets, The Hours), Shane Patrick Kearns (Blue Collar Boys), Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black) and Emmy winner and Tony nominee Gordon Clapp (NYPD Blue, Matewan, Glengarry Glen Ross).
