WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Wilmington audiences are getting another chance to see a movie filmed here.

A Short History of Decay will be returning to the Port City as part of the Cinematique Film Series at Thalian Hall beginning on May 19. 

The movie stars Bryan Greenberg and former Wilmington resident Linda Lavin.

It was shot on location in Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington.

The movie follows the story of a man (Greenberg) who, after getting dumped by his girlfriend (Emmanuelle Chriqui), goes to Florida when his father (Harris Yulin) is hospitalized. Meantime, his mother, played by Lavin, is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

According to a release about the movie, "his quick visit turns into an extended stay during which he discovers that his aging parents are actually in much better control of their lives than he is."

Kathleen Rose Perkins and Benjamin King also star in the film.

The movie was written by Michael Maren, who makes his directorial debut. It is based on his mother's battle with Alzheimer's disease.

A Short History of Decay premiered last fall at the Cucalorus Film Festival.
