Wallace Shawn and Julianne Moore head an extraordinary ensemble cast in a striking adaptation of Chekhov's drama of people trapped between reality and longing. When an elderly retired professor and his beautiful young wife return to the country estate left to the family by the professor's deceased first wife, they find themselves surrounded by other family members. Quickly, the estate becomes a hothouse of unspoken passions, jealousies and regrets. Based on David Mamet's adaptation of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya."
