    Chicago Tribune

    The Sisters isn't just bad Chekhov; it's bad Chekhov modernized and then plunked in front of a camera.

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Lifeless and irredeemably sour. It is difficult to imagine much of an audience embracing it, despite a cast of well-knowns and up-and-comers.

    Insufferable characters make for an insufferable play or movie. The Sisters, a grueling family feud conceived by Richard Alfieri, proves the point.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Projects like this bring out the best in actors, who take salary cuts to work in Chekhov (even at one remove). What we can guess, watching the film, is that the same players would make a good job of "Three Sisters" but are undermined by the faculty club, which works like a hotel lobby. There's no way to sustain dramatic momentum here.
