"[T]here is an intriguing cast..."
This adaptation of Anton Chekhov's THREE SISTERS was part of the American Film Theater series, conceived in the 1970s by producer Ely Landau, and meant to be shown theatrically just like a play, with tickets sold in advance. The play focuses on a trio of sisters who live far away from the big city they yearn for, Moscow. Olga, Masha, and Irina all seek relief from their dreary lives and dream of somehow returning to the city they love just as Russia is about to endure a social and political upheaval that will change it forever. Directed by Laurence Olivier, THREE SISTERS is a brooding and intense version of Chekhov's classic.
