Helen Mirren's 'The Last Station' Drops Official Trailer


A first look into the chaos that happens after Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy decides to abandon his comfortable life and surrenders to poverty and celibacy.

A devoted wife and passionate lover of fifty years is suddenly abandoned by her husband when he opts to regress to poverty, vegetarianism and celibacy. A potential Oscar contender, "The Last Station" has just got its first trailer that gives a preview at how Countess Sofya is frustrated with the changes her husband makes.

The epic drama is adapted from Jay Parini's novel of the same name about famous author Leo Tolstoy. During their marriage, Sofya has copied out "War and Peace" six times by hand and thus she flips out upon knowing that Tolstoy is encouraged to sign a new will that gives his inheritance to Russia instead of his family.

The roles of Sofya and Tolstoy were originally given to Meryl Streep and Anthony Hopkins but now they are filled by Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer. Joining the two in the cast ensemble are James McAvoy as Tolstoy's young and gullible assistant, Valentine, and Paul Giamatti as Tolstoy's trusted disciple, Chertkov.

A tale of two romances, one beginning, one near its end, "The Last Station" will be released in limited theaters in New York and Los Angeles on December 4.
