A new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s first play, most commonly referred to as Platonov. Andrew Upton’s adaptation is set post-Perestroika in the mid-1990s at an old country house where friends gather to celebrate the birthday of the independent but compromised widow Anna Petrovna (Cate Blanchett).  At the center is the acerbic and witty Platonov (Richard Roxburgh) with his wife, his former students and friends and their partners.  They may appear comfortable, but boiling away inside is a mess of unfinished, unresolved relationships, fueled by twenty years of denial, regret and thwarted desire.
