This month's film will be The Cherry Orchard on Wednesday Nov. 2 at 8:00pm at the Avalon Theater.
This Greek-French-Cypriot co-production directed and produced by Michael Cacoyannis is actually an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's final drama. Set in turn of the century Russia, it chronicles the story of a woman who returns to her family's estate after five years away. She struggles to reestablish her place in the home and society amidst a climate of political and social upheaval, but also with the painful memories of her son's death. The star-studded international cast includes Charlotte Rampling, Alan Bates, and Frances de la Tour.
