The Last Station
Biographical drama, starring Christopher Plummer and Helen Mirren, telling the tale of Leo Tolstoy as his wife fights for both his love and his money.
Biographical drama. Young Valentin Bulgakov gains a post as personal assistant to Leo Tolstoy through Chertkov, the leader of the Tolstoyan movement who attempt to promote Tolstoy's views on world peace and pacifism throughout the world. Tolstoy, caring little for worldly goods, lives on his estate among his disciples as founder of the movement, writing little. He wants to donate his estate and publishing rights to the people, but his beloved wife Countess Sofya does not want their children, or herself, to be disinherited and fights him and the machiavellian Chertkov as much for Tolstoy's love as for his money.
