The Last Station is the kind of adult drama that I'm just thankful is still being made. Therefore, I was ecstatic to also find it to be rather good.

La película es un placer de principio a fin, no sólo por su valor testimonial y su estupenda reconstrucción de época, sino sobre todo por un notable elenco donde se lucen particularmente Helen Mirren y Christopher Plummer.

All of the performances are universally stellar, making this not unlike last year's Doubt %u2014 a solid, if otherwise unremarkable film that provides a playground for performers of prodigious talents.

A charming and compelling account of Tolstoy's last year.

Sunday Times (Australia)

This handsome, well-tuned adaptation of Jay Parini's Tolstoy biography avoids being a dour subtitled slog by its strong casting, layered contrasts of love and duty, and admirable air of enthusiasm.

Laramie Movie Scope

The acting is excellent by this very capable cast, and the story is interesting. The cinematography, by Sebastian Edschmid (Adam Resurrected) is also excellent. The outdoor scenes are lush and gorgeous.

Despite all the bitterness and skulduggery, The Last Station is surprisingly warm and spirited in tone.

At the Movies (Australia)

In the end the film is quite moving, and the original home movie and newsreel footage we see over the end credits adds a potent touch to the drama we've already seen.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Helen Mirren gives a scorching performance as Sophia: aggrieved, charming, seductive, furious, painted by the acolytes as hysterical, but also at times a woman with her own dignity.

Impressively directed and finely acted, this film gives real insight into the life of a fascinating man.

A superb cast all at their best help breath life into this biographical story of the last chapter of writer and philosopher (and liberal leaning aristocrat) Leo Tolstoy

Two love stories -- one at the end of Tolstoy's turbulent 48-year marriage, the other at its beginning -- intersect at a rail station.

The Last Station is indeed well done, very moving, and informative, but it left me a little cold at the end. Perhaps I just felt frustrated at how little the world changes even when people with good ideas come along.

Literature lasts, but sometimes, The Last Station suggests, the ties that bind last, too.

Mirren and Plummer give lusty, full-blooded portraits of the Tolstoys...

Delicately photographed, whimsically scored and patiently paced, Station doesn't rely on flash and panache to make its points. But the points do come across elegantly.

Some critics have derided the central performances as scenery-chewing excess, but these Tolstoys are characters who demand histrionics, and Mirren and Plummer are magnificent in delivering on those demands.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

while ... buttressed by two of the past year's most entertaining performances ... the film as a whole is slightly underwhelming, in part because Tolstoy is simply too big a figure to fit into a two-hour drama.
