    Excellent production, directing, acting, etc., wasted on a mundane story. The elderly Tolstoy is caught up with liberalism (unrealistic idealism) of passive resistance, eliminating property rights (the cornerstone of capitalism), and Marxist redistribution of wealth. His wife wants royalties from his works to go to his heirs while Tolstoy wants to give up his copyrighted ownership to the people and deny his heirs, which he does behind her back. That's it. She gets some revenge as revealed in a note at the end of the movie. No redeeming virtues to this wasted effort..

    I like both Helen Miren and Christopher Plummer. The whole movie was the two of them as a bickering couple. It doesn't matter that one of them is famous, it could have been anyone. Well acted but recommend passing this by.
