Love is timeless. Love is fleeting. And love is complicated. Definitely complicated in this passionate adaptation of Turgenev’s classic play A Month in the Country starring Ralph Fiennes.
The beautiful Natalya is married to Arkadi, a rich but older landowner. Bored with her life, she catches the eye of the handsome Mikhail (Fiennes). Might this flirtation develop into something more? Not once the young, attractive Aleksei arrives as tutor to Natalya’s son. Natalya falls for Aleksei, but so does her teenage step-daughter Vera. Suddenly Natalia’s seemingly idyllic life has turned into a complex web of unrequited love, guilt, lust and jealousy.
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Sylvie Testud, Aleksandr Baluev
