We’ve got our hands on two preview clips of The Seagull, the upcoming period drama movie directed by Michael Mayer and starring Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening, Elisabeth Moss, Corey Stoll, Brian Dennehy, Billy Howle, Mare Winningham, Michael Zegen, Jon Tenney, and Glenn Fleshler:
The Seagull – What doe sit feel like to be famous?
The Seagull – Loving without hope
“An aging actress named Irina Arkadina (Annette Bening) pays summer visits to her brother Pjotr Nikolayevich Sorin (Brian Dennehy) and her son Konstantin (Billy Howle) on a country estate. On one occasion, she brings Trigorin (Corey Stoll), a successful novelist, with her. Nina (Saoirse Ronan), a free and innocent girl on a neighboring estate, falls in love with Boris Trigorin. As Trigorin lightly consumes and rejects Nina, so the actress all her life has consumed and rejected her son, who loves Nina. The victims are destroyed while the sophisticates continue on their way.”
