One summer at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family gather for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life.
Adapted by Tony-winning playwright Stephen Karam from Anton Chekhov's classic play ‘The Seagull’ explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art. Utilizing natural light, Matthew J. Lloyd’s cinematography is stunning, highlighting the detailed production design and authentic period costumes. Saoirse Ronan’s tender, wrenching performance as the lovelorn Nina, and, especially, Annette Bening’s fantastic turn as Irina, the grand dame of the Russian theatre whose most tumultuous work occurs offstage, are both outstanding. Also stars Elisabeth Moss and Brian Dennehy.
The screening of The Seagull Monday 10 September 13.15 was advertised as having subtitles for the hard of hearing. We have been informed, by the distributor, that a subtitled version is not available. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
