An all-star cast, led by Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Annette Bening (20th Century Women) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), brings Anton Chekhov’s classic play to life in this stunning big screen adaptation directed by Tony-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). 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 (The Humans), 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. Also starring Corey Stoll, Jon Tenney, Mare Winningham, Michael Legen, Billy Howle and Brian Dennehy. (Dir. by Michael Mayer, 2018, USA, 98 mins., Rated PG-13)
