SYNOPSIS: Every summer aristocratic actress Irina (ANNETTE BENING), her brother Sorin (BRIAN DENNEHY) and her son Konstantin (BILLY HOWLE) entertain family and friends at their lakeside estate. When Irina's lover, the successful novelist Boris Trigorin (COREY STOLL), accompanies her one year, Nina (SAOIRSE RONAN), a naive girl who lives on a neighbouring estate, falls in love with the older Boris. He basks in her adulation, while Masha (ELISABETH MOSS) is obsessed with Konstantin, who loves Nina. 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.
