This exquisite adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s classic drama finds a group of friends and family gathered for a seemingly jovial weekend in the countryside. But under the surface, Nina (Saoirse Ronan) pines desperately for Irina’s (Annette Bening) partner Boris (Corey Stoll), a celebrated playwright. Meanwhile, Masha (Elisabeth Moss) fights a battle with her own unrequited love.
This layered saga about art, fame, family and human folly plays out with claustrophobic intensity, as the lives of friends, families and lovers—all living under the same roof—become entangled. Directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), this tragicomedy asks timeless questions about how best to live a purposeful life and, more importantly, how to love.
