The Last Station - AFI

The Last Station, directed by Michael Hoffman was screened at the AFI film festival last November 2009. The film is about the later years of Leo Tolstoy (Christopher Plummer). You may think the film will be too boring and intellectual, but really it a beautiful love story about Leo Tolstoy and his wife of 48 years Sofya Tolstoy (Helen Mirren). Valentin Bulgakov (James McAvoy), Leo Tolstoy's assistant is caught between Leo and Sofya's constant fighting.

Prior to the screening AFI paid Tribute to Christopher Plummer with a Q&A about his amazing career.
