Vanya on 42nd Street (1994)

Director Louis Malle turns his camera to a dilapidated 42nd street
theater to capture of a troupe of actors rehearsing a run-through of
David Mamet's version of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya." He's joined by theater
director Andre Gregory and actor Wallace Shawn, with whom he shared
inconceivable success in MY DINNER WITH ANDRE.  The rest of the cast
includes Julianne Moore, Brooke Smith, Larry Pine, and George Gaynes.

The entire film is a filmed play-- nothing more and nothing less.
Theater buffs should love it, though it's probably too dry for the
casual viewer.

Grade: B+
