Commack graduate Ashley Reyes will make her latest film debut
this month at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, playing the role
of “Daisy” in the movie, “Night Has Fallen.”
The film takes place in 1983 New York City and is a coming-of-age story of 13-year-old Oliver Nicholas, who is about to enter the precocious teenage world, when he is traumatized by the stroke of his housekeeper and only true maternal figure. What was supposed to be an exhilarating and somewhat fearful rite of passage quickly becomes skewed by an incomprehensible depression and a house of interior horrors.
Reyes plays Daisy, one of Oliver's close friends in the film.
The Commack graduate has been acting she the age of 7, performing in local theaters, television and film. She is now living in London, studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.
The Film Festival will run from Jan. 30 through Feb. 9.
