  • In this gentle romantic comedy based on Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya," an English gentleman looking forward to a serene summer in the country finds the going a bit rough when he falls in love with his ex-brother-in-law's American wife. To add further insult, the woman's husband announces his plans to sell the family's ancestral estate. This film marks Hopkins' directorial debut, and he also composed the score.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Modest, pleasant, and a touch melancholy, AUGUST feels suitably Chekhovian..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...The film is a thoroughly respectable translation, and Hopkins has a firm grasp of text and subtext. It's well performed by a fine ensemble cast..."
    Variety

    "...Hopkins has specific ideas and executes them well....Hopkins has proved himself capable, if not virtuosic, in his first outing behind the camera..."
