Directed by Laurence Olivier and featuring a specially commissioned score by composer William Walton, this filmed production of Anton Chekhov's classic play by London's world-renowned National Theatre Company is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
The action takes place in a Russian provincial town at the turn of the century. It tells the story of Olga, Masha and Irina – daughters of a dead general, who with their brother Andrei live out their days bound together by feelings of melancholy, endless yearning and disappointment. The themes of troubled, unrequited love, provincial boredom and the imagined glamour of the capital to which the sisters long to return are brilliantly conveyed in outstanding performances by some of the twentieth century's greatest theatrical players.
