Exceptionally skilled cast portray the loves, the longing, the slanders …
From source Chekhov, but overall the film panders
To uneven shifts in mood.
So, even with this talented brood

One plus: the animals are expertly rendered.

Professor Rachel’s attending a wedding in the home town

Of his mother and assorted fam).
Abundant laughs and OTT glam

Notorious RBG: Associate Justice of the Court (Supreme);
Tireless octogenarian with a round-the-clock work regime.
Excellent portrait of a genius legal mind
Who’s fought for womankind.
After hard-won battles, millions hold her in high esteem.

Christian’s going straight: A new supermarket job where he greets
(In the break room) Marion (from the magical aisle of the sweets).
New friends are connected.
Forklift driving’s perfected.
There’s gentle melancholy, black humour, and dodgy processed meats.
