The Last StationA historical drama that illustrates Russian author Leo Tolstoy';s struggle to balance fame and wealth with his commitment to a life devoid of material things. The Countess Sofya Andreevna Tolstoy, wife and muse to Leo Tolstoy, believes that her husband';s writings are rightfully hers after he passes, as she wants and believes she deserves the monetary benefits derived from such. And in 1910, the last year of Leo Tolstoy';s life, his disciples, led by Vladimir Chertkov, manoeuvre against his wife, Sofya, for control over Tolstoy';s works after his death.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "The Last Station"Miami HeraldMarch 18, 2010
Literature lasts, but sometimes, The Last Station suggests, the ties that bind last, too.Film.comMarch 02, 2010
Some critics have derided the central performances as scenery-chewing excess, but these Tolstoys are characters who demand histrionics, and Mirren and Plummer are magnificent in delivering on those demands.Orlando SentinelFebruary 24, 2010
The Last Station is a moving, fictionalized account of a piece of real Russian history, a tour de force for an actor who's in his prime in his 70s and 80s, and a real return to form for a director most at home in period pieces.Time OutFebruary 19, 2010
Engaging performers all, but the movie's superficial flummery is slightly exasperating when the true-life events would have provided an even richer palette of ideas.St. Louis Post-DispatchFebruary 18, 2010
It's rewarding for a film to render rarefied ideas so concretely, but The Last Station works best as a battle of wills between husband and wife.Detroit NewsFebruary 12, 2010
Director and writer Michael Hoffman, adapting Jay Parini's novel, lets the history play out, and this little-known chapter plays out nicely indeed.Common Sense MediaDecember 31, 2010
Mature Tolstoy biopic recounts his conflicted last days.QuickflixOctober 21, 2010
The Last Station is the kind of adult drama that I'm just thankful is still being made. Therefore, I was ecstatic to also find it to be rather good.Movies for the MassesJuly 29, 2010

Feels akin to using Tolstoy's life to write a greeting card.Uruguay TotalJuly 04, 2010
La película es un placer de principio a fin, no sólo por su valor testimonial y su estupenda reconstrucción de época, sino sobre todo por un notable elenco donde se lucen particularmente Helen Mirren y Christopher Plummer.DCistJuly 04, 2010
All of the performances are universally stellar, making this not unlike last year's Doubt %u2014 a solid, if otherwise unremarkable film that provides a playground for performers of prodigious talents.
