The Seagull

Elisabeth Moss, Saoirse Ronan and Annette Bening headline this drama based on the Chekhov play. An aging actress (Bening) pays a visit to her brother's lakeside estate. She brings with her a successful and charismatic novelist (Corey Stoll from Ant-Man). He proceeds to seduce and reject an innocent neighbor girl (Ronan), much to the delight of his bitter host. Don't worry, there are plenty of other messy love affairs to go around. Although the script pares away much of Chekhov's weighty dialogue for modern audiences, the whole thing remains a stodgy and stagebound affair. 98 minutes
