An aging actress named Irina Arkadina pays summer visits to her brother Pjotr Nikolayevich Sorin and her son Konstantin on a country estate. On one occasion, she brings Trigorin, a successful novelist, with her. Nina, a free and innocent girl on a neighboring estate, falls in love with Boris Trigorin.
I wanted to watch this movie and I sat their with excitement wanting it to be worth it. The cast was amazing, all incredibly talented which is why it was sad to watch all of that talent waste into nothing. I must admit I have not read the original work so I will not critique the story, but this adaptation of it was boring, listless and never went anywhere. I felt like I got on a train, road through beautiful country, but ended up exiting at the exact spot from where I had entered. Not much happened though I was constantly on the edge of my seat anticipating something. This was very much a wasted hour and a half.
