The Seagull is in select theaters on June 8th, 2018.

The Seagull is based on a play of the same name by Anton Chekhov. The film stars Saoirse Ronan As Nina, Annette Bening as Irina and Corey Stoll as Boris. They are all in a weird love triangle where Nina and Boris fall in love but he’s also under the thumb of Irina. It’s supposed to take place in Russia but they all speak English and have American Accents soooo....

I’m not familiar with Anton Checkhov’s work - I’m sure seeing the play in real life is great... the movie though not so much. I felt very bored and also confused- the story just went on and on but there was no payoff. Boris leaves Nina to get back with Irina and it’s just like why....

I don’t know, this just wasn’t for me. I do enjoy a good period piece this just missed the mark.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
