Overview

Screenwriter Richard Alfieri and director Arthur Allan Siedelman adapt Anton Chekhov's classic stage play The Three Sisters to the screen in this film starring Mary Stuart Masterson, Maria Bello, and Erika Christensen as the titular siblings. Upon departing from Charleston, SC, to further their education at a prestigious Manhattan college, sisters Marcia Bello, Olga Masterson, and Irine Christensen soon become lost in fantasies of what their lives may have been to the point where they are unable to affect change in their real lives. As the three sisters gradually open up to each other and their brother, Andrew Alessandro Nivola, the specter of their deceased father soon lifts, leaving the nostalgic siblings to realize that the only way to confront the brutal realities of life is through honesty and understanding.

    A Play it Again Sam kind of movie

    I loved this movie. I was constantly hitting the "reverse" button because I had to be sure that I understood every word, as spoken. There was so much to learn, to think about, in these conversations between members of this extraordinary family. A movie showing very real circumstances with thankfully no gratuitous scenes thrown in just to shock. Maria Bello was amazing. Without exception, every cast member gave a stellar performance. My husband and I both knew, very early in the movie, that this was a "must own" movie. If you like movies about relationships,families "especially sisters" buy it, it will not disappoint.

    Best Movie I've Seen in Years

    The acting was amazing and perfect. I bought it based on reviews from another site. I wasn't disappointed. Just buy or rent it and see for yourself.
