About

hollywood-seagull-movie-aboutHollywood Seagull is a modern version of Chekhov’s classic romance of love, betrayal and hope. The film stars Lara Romanoff as Nina, a Russian actress in LA caught in a nest of Hollywood vipers. Oleg Vidov plays her grandfather. The original score by Evgeny Shchukin with songs by Vladimir Vysotsky and American jazz man Doug White. Shot on 35 mm on the bluffs of Malibu, the cinematography by Don E. FauntLeRoy is lush and breathtaking. The legendary editor Scott Conrad contributes his best work since he won the Oscar for Rocky. Now more than ever, the world needs wisdom, humor and grace – the world needs Chekhov.

 

 

 

 

“A visionary rethinking of Anton Chekhov’s most explosive work.  Anyone who thinks of the Russian master as polite will have their cages rattled by Lara Romanoff’s Nina who shows a Dietrich-esque absorption of light and sexual liberation. There is no doubt that director Guinzburg has caught the unique Checkhovian ambiance of men and women in dachas gone mad with love and lust.”
