The Seagull - New UK Trailer

Starring Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss, Corey Stoll and Billy Howle

In cinemas 7th September 2018

One summer at a lakeside Russian estate, friends and family father for a weekend in the countryside. While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life.

Aristocratic actress Irina (BENING, 20th Century Women) pays summer visits to her brother Sorin (BRIAN DENNEHY, First Blood) and her son Konstantin (HOWLE, On Chesil Beach). On one occasion, her lover, the successful novelist Boris Trigorin (STOLL, Midnight in Paris), accompanies her. When Nina (RONAN, Lady Bird), a free and innocent girl who lives on a neighbouring estate, falls in love with Boris, he basks in her adulation, while Irina is shunned by Konstantin, who loves Nina.

Based on Anton Chekhov’s classic play, THE SEAGULL explores, with comedy and melancholy, the obsessive nature of love, the tangled relationships between parents and children, and the transcendent value and psychic toll of art.
