There's at least one train of thought most critics can agree on when it comes to 'The Last Station': Helen Mirren's performance as Leo Tolstoy's wife Sofya is a wonder. She's already been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award.

The rest of the movie? Reviews are generally favorable, but more in favor of the high-powered cast -- including Christopher Plummer as Tolstoy, James McAvoy and Paul Giamatti -- than anything else, including Michael Hoffman's direction.

'The Last Station' is based on Jay Parini's novel about Tolstoy's final years and most feel the story is not up to the performances or the subject matter. Here's a sampling of reviews and you don't have to be a Tolstoy to comment:
