The Seagull

Dir. Michael Mayer. USA, 2018. 1h 39m. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening, Elisabeth Moss, Corey Stoll, Brian Dennehy, Michael Zegen.

At a picturesque lakeside manor, a love triangle unfolds between an aristocratic actress, a successful novelist, and the girl living on the neighbouring estate. Based on Chekhov’s classic play, this sprightly period drama explores the obsessive nature of love and the tangled relationships between parents and children.

‘This Chekhov adaptation is often very funny. And not just in its deft treatment of a hilariously elaborate love hexagon’ ★★★★ Ed Potton, The Times

‘Director Michael Mayer captures the comedy, tenderness and the bleakness of the play’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
