September is a 1987 film written and directed by Woody Allen. The film is modeled on Anton Chekhov's play Uncle Vanya, though the gender roles are often subverted.
Allen's intention for September was that it be like "a play on film," hence the great number of long takes and few camera effects. The film does not use Allen as an actor, and is one of his straightforwardly dramatic films. The cast includes Mia Farrow, Sam Waterston, Dianne Wiest, Elaine Stritch, Jack Warden, and Denholm Elliott.
