I always find it difficult to say that I "enjoy" a film / play like Chekov's "The Seagull". I have seen multiple versions on the stage and screen, so the story line was no surprise. You have to decide whether the acting is compelling. This latest version has a great cast: Annette Bening captures the extreme narcissism of Irina Arkadina. Saoirse Ronan as Nina seems to be able to beautifully and believably portray any age from teens to 30's. Elisabeth Moss is always a favorite of mine and does such a good job as the whining, self-involved Masha that I would have cheerfully slapped her if I could. Mare Winningham and Brian Dennehy are long term favorites. There are no "heroes or heroines" in "The Seagull". They feel almost no empathy among themselves, so it is difficult to "bond" with the characters. You have to feel some of the pain of the young people surrounded by such selfishness, as they seemed doomed to act out their personal damage. As you can tell, I found the acting ( primarily by the women) to be fine, so if you "like" the darkness of this Chekov play, I recommend this version. Kristi & Abby Tabby
