Tolstoy’s Birthday and “The Last Station”

In honour of Tolstoy’s birthday today, I’m going to recomend The Last Station.The movie stars Christopher Plummer playing an eccentric Leo Tolstoy during the last months of his life. It’s not a flawless movie, but strong performances and a potent final scene make it worth the ride. Makes you want to read some Tolstoy too.
