I was pleasently  surprised to have  encountered  this movie on television and it made me stay late up till 2 am but it was captivating movie worthed every second. The Last Station is surprisingly warm and spirited in tone full of captivating details.It is a love story set during the last year of the life of the great Russian writer Leo Tolstoy.“Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly.”     LEO TOLSTOY, War and Peace

As a fiction writer Tolstoy is widely regarded as one of the greatest of all novelists, particularly noted for his masterpieces War and Peace and Anna Karenina. In their scope, breadth and realistic depiction of 19th-century Russian life, the two books stand at the peak of realist fiction. As a moral philosopher Tolstoy was notable for his ideas on nonviolent resistance through works such as The Kingdom of God is Within You, which in turn influenced such twentieth-century figures as Mohandas K. Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. Source : http://www.wikipedia.org/
