The final year of Russian socialist writer Leo Tolstoy's life comes to the screen with Christopher Plummer in the lead role and Helen Mirren portraying his wife. This movie has a pretty damn good cast and good acting but the movie does lacks on some characters in the movie.

A very strong film filled with great actors and performances. The final year of the troubled marriage of Leo Tolstoy and his wife are portrayed here, along with other important figures of the time. There's really no standout - everyone is superb. In fact, I wasn't really sure who we were supposed to sympathize with, though I found Paul Giamatti's character a little bit of a weasel. Don't know how accurate the final scene is, but it is very moving. One minor complaint - all the characters are Russian, but being portrayed by actors who don't even attempt the accent (most are British). That was a little annoying at first but eventually you get past it because everyone is turning in some really strong work.

Although the film can seem a bit slow in parts, the acting is absolutely superb and is to be celebrated. The film may not suit all film goers, as period piece author biopics are not to everybody’s liking. “The Last Station” retells the last year of celebrated author, Leo Tolstoy’s (Christopher Plummer) life. In particular, it focuses on Tolstoy’s relationship with his wife, Countess Sofya (Helen Mirren). As a result of mixed political views, their marriage of 42 years was extremely turbulent, but could also be extremely passionate and loving.
