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… Runtime: 98 min Release Date: 26 Jul 2018
This was one of best artful camera work, soundtrack, acting and directing I have seen in a long time. All women's characters are in the foreground and are so well developed, so different, so rich, so interesting ... with something peculiar about each one of them. The camera was seeing every woman with love.... bravo!Annette Benning is such a vulnerable, profound, complex, genius and tender comic. Please crown this regal actor - she is perfection...Costumes!!!! Spectacular... - Oscars due!!!! Exquisite execution.... eye candy... The garments are big players in this film. >> <more>
Appreciate what an important role a bustier plays in the scene where Gorina is begging her lover to not leave her: touching, funny, embarrassing, sexy, paradoxically perfect. The men were terrific too, and in the ensemble, I did care about all of the characters. The Seagull delivers to the viewers pure tender pleasure to revel in human drama of love while allowing them to chuckle at least a dozen times in the comedy of life.
Don't miss this dazzlingly beautiful adaptation of a Chekhov classic, its SUPERB! (by inkblot11)
Irina Annette Bening is a famous actress in Moscow. Years ago, she had an affair with a fellow actor and a son, Konstantin Billy Howle , was born. Now an adult, this son lives with his uncle Sorin Brian Dennedy in the country and has never garnered attention or much love from his mother. When she comes for a summer visit to the gorgeous, lakeside estate of her brother's, Konstantin sees a chance for him to put on his new play with the help of a beautiful young neighbor, Nina Saoirse Ronan , who is an aspiring actress. She is also greatly loved by the young playwright. This is <more>
upsetting to Masha Elizabeth Moss who dresses in black and maintains a sorrowing countenance, for she is in love with Konstantin. The town's schoolteacher wants very much to marry Masha but, she declares she can't for she is in love with another. So, here comes Mother with her new love, Boris Corey Stoll , a famous writer, in tow. At the play's performance, Irina talks over so much of the rather stilted dialogue that Konstantin blows up in anger, ends the performance, and tries to shoot himself. Will his mother ever love him and appreciate his talents? Then, too, Boris casts his eye on Nina and she returns the infatuation, which brings Irina to a melting point and a swift exit from the country, with Boris tagging along. Naturally, Konstantin is now also hurt about Nina's wandering eye. To prove his affection in bizarre fashion, Kon shoots a seagull and places it at Nina's feet, as a love offering. Nina is not impressed. We can never say all's well that ends well with this party of Russians, can we? This dazzling film is beautiful in every way but it is sad, sad, and more sad. The actors are wonderful, with Bening giving a tremendous turn as the flighty Irina and Ronan also amazing as the naive Nina. Stoll, Howle, Dennehy, and the rest are beyond measure, too. Then, the scenery is lovely to the maximum, with a heavenly setting in the beautiful countryside, and the cinematography shows it off with many interesting and gorgeous shots. One expects lovely costumes for a period piece and they are marvelous. Finally, the direction is one of the finest this viewer has ever witnessed, making a 100 year old Chekhov play accessible to everyone. Don't miss The Seagull, it soars.
A slightly shorter but stellar version of Checkov's novel (by eseconsult)
This play was a surprising treat. The film felt more like a stage play of high quality, than a movie. The acting was of high quality performances. Bravo once again to miss Ronan. She touches your heart every time.
A pleasure (by craig-359-543502)
First, let me say that this film is not for everyone. If you don't have an appreciation for the tragedy often present in real human relationships and often chronicled by Russian authors you may not enjoy this movie to the fullest. On the other hand, if you have some familiarity with Russian literature you may be pleasantly surprised. The cast performed wonderfully.
Watch Saoirse Soar! (by bondscammer)
'The Seagull' is an entertaining adaptation of the Chekhov classic. Though the parts are greater than the sum, in this case, it's more than enough to recommend this as best enjoyed as a comedy ensemble piece about misplaced love and the misunderstandings that follow. Honestly, I went to see this for my favorite actress, Saoirse Ronan. And she soars in this! She plays a pivotal role, Nina Zarechnaya, who, as you will see when you watch this, is the living metaphor behind the titular meaning. Soarse is photographed as effervescent and luminous; and is stunning. Who wouldn't <more>
believe any man of any age wouldn't fall for her! I did, too! Saoirse perfectly shows Nina's naive determination to seduce Trigorin in exchange for similar fame as he has. The price of losing the young man who loves her, Konstantin, doesn't sway her ambitions. The film's coda allows Saoirse to show the end result of her ruthless determination to gain fame at any cost; and the results will break your heart as it did mine. Saoirse is absolutely brilliant here; as she transitions to mature adult roles. Overall, all of the characters endure their own love missteps and confusion, to both humorous and bittersweet results. Annette Bening is terrific as the aging actress, Irina, as is forever melancholy and bitter Masha, played by Elizabeth Moss, who crackles and has some great lines she vigorously chews thru! A great cast where the women stand out in all their parts and the men dutifully acquiesce.
SPOILER: The Seagull. Heart wrenching, hilarious, appalling, and the only one who gets out alive is the seagull, shot early on. So much ambition, so little success. From the estate staff, cooks, & caretaker to renowned stage and literary stars, breathtaking in life's limitations.
Excellent ensemble (by mayhem-54206)
Old school techniques in lighting and the use of close-ups were the perfect complement to the stunning setting where the film was shot. The ensemble is perfectly cast; the women shine in this film but the male roles were also expertly played by the surprising Corey Stoll and Billy Howle. My only critique is that the end does feel a bit rushed...it moves toward its inevitable conclusion, but in a way that could have been fleshed out a bit more. Excellent adaptation overall.
SEAGULL DOWN: the misery of unrequited work & love shot through the lens of art / Silver Knight Rating: 7.75 Cameras (by StoryArchitect)
I saw THE SEAGULL last night at Tower Theater here in Sacramento, California. I'm glad I did. The agony of love, the agony of art . . . the pleasure and pain of human relationships and the joy and trauma of creativity--the tragic comedy of unrequited work & love. How could I not love it? I'm the sweet-spot of their target audience: a heartbroken artist.This smart, entertaining, soul-searching riff on Checkhov's play by screenwriter Stephen Karam and director Michael Mayer looks and sounds beautiful on film.I burst into a catharsis induced cry at the crucial moment, the <more>
thematic climax of the story, blissfully blindsided by the storytellers' beautiful insight into what it takes to be an artist. Once again, I experienced the power of art to lift me up and help me soar when my wings feel clipped or I feel shot down.My Silver Knight Rating of THE SEAGULL--White Knight Form : 7.5Black Knight Story : 8.0 Silver Knight Form & Story : 7.757.75 CamerasThe Silver Knight Rating scores a movie's level of play in what I call the Chess Game of Art.
