The period film Onegin is based on the Alexander Pushkin novel Eugene Onegin, which was written in verse. Produced by and starring Ralph Fiennes and directed by his sister Sophie, Onegin tells the story of a jaded Russian aristocrat who trifles with the emotions of his contemporaries, rejects love, finds it anew and then loses it. The film captures the unique tone of the novel and maintains a delicate balance between the tragic and the sublime through fine acting and cinematography that is both poetic and haunting. Liv Tyler costars.
