Chekhov on film

Been there.

Over at Alex on Film I’ve been watching some film adaptations of the work of Anton Chekhov. He’s not a writer who gets the big-screen treatment very often, at least in English-language productions. And the films that have been made tend to be very stagey. Still, they each have their strengths.

Three Sisters (1970)
The Cherry Orchard (1981)
The Seagull (2018)
