The Seagull


Golden Globe winners Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) and Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right) lead this adaptation of Chekhov's stage play.... More

"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. The Seagull’s cast of celebrated performers brings fresh perspective to these beloved, complicated characters. Rich with feeling, this tragicomedy asks timeless questions about how best to live a purposeful life and, more importantly, how to love." (Tribeca Film Festival)Hide
