Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren (Best Actress, The Queen, 2006) and Christopher Plummer star in this compelling look at the final days of literary icon Leo Tolstoy. Having renounced his title and property, Tolstoy makes plans to donate his royalties to the Russian people, supported by his trusted disciple Chertkov (Paul Giamatti). Tolstoy’s outraged wife wages a one-woman war to challenge her husband’s outrageous act of idealism. Co-starring Golden Globe® nominee James McAvoy (Atonement) as the novelist’s worshipful assistant whose romance with a free-spirited young woman puts Tolstoy’s notion of ideal love to the ultimate test.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Michael Hoffman's script doesn't quite live up to its famous subject, but this Tolstoy biopic benefits from a spellbinding tour de force performance by Helen Mirren.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this period drama recounting Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy’s last months, while powerful and well acted, isn't too likely to appeal to kids. It has moments of both intense squabbling and gentle loving between the writer and his wife. Many of their fights are loud and painfully honest (though not venomous), and younger teens may find them disturbing. There’s also a sex scene with partial nudity (a woman's breasts) and a little swearing (though "bitch" is about as strong as it gets).
