Informative to a limited extient; not sufficient concetration on his life and family. A large chunk of the film is devoted to his characters and their cultural influence.

Great movie and story about one of the greatest writers in our past. Was engaginging during the entire movie ... Much more than a simple bio, it connects SA to the history of the Easturn European Jews and their place in Czarist Russia at the turn of the 20th Century
