    Outstanding, Highly Recommend

    Terrific performances by Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer, a well written script, more or less historically accurate (I think), and an intriguing plot, that pits an aging Tolstoy against his devoted but borderline wife, as she seeks to maintain control of the copyrights to his work while he seeks to donate them to the Russian people. Engaging story, well put together.

    Great Performances

    Both lead actors and supporting cast were GREAT.
    Helen M. was truly perfect as Tolstoy's wife, the countess.
    Christopher P. played an emotional aging Tolstoy with compassion for the historic character's role in Russian history.

    Tolstoy"s last year

    A 2009 movie based on Tolstoy's final year, The Last Station is based on a novel by Jay Parini published in 1993.

    Unfortunately this movie won't be an epic. A Dr Zhivago it is not. An English Patient it definitely isn't. The movie is not sumptuous enough. It is more like a play involving a few characters. If you do not know the history of Tolstoy and his difficult relationship with Sofia his wife you will have difficulty appreciating this movie.So read Tolstoy's biography before seeing this movie.
