The Seagull trailer: Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan and Elisabeth Moss take on Chekhov
Based on Anton Chekhov’s classic 1896 play of the same name, The Seagull brings together three exceptional actresses in Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan and Elisabeth Moss for this period drama adaptation. The film has already had a release in the US earlier in the year and you can watch the trailer for The Seagull above right now.
Aristocratic actress Irina (Annette Bening) pays summer visits to her brother Sorin and her son Konstantin. On one occasion, her lover, the successful novelist Boris Trigorin, accompanies her. When Nina (Saoirse Ronan), a free and innocent girl who lives on a neighbouring estate, falls in love with Boris, he basks in her adulation, while Irina is shunned by Konstantin, who loves Nina.
Michael Mayer directs, with Stephen Karam tasked with screenplay duties. Brian Dennehy, Billy Howle and Corey Stoll also feature in the film.
The Seagull flies into UK cinemas this September.
