IFF Day 11: The Last Station

The Last Station has Helen Mirren. Magnificent. If it needs anything else, it also has a great performance by Christopher Plummer. It's about the last days of Tolstoy, which is pretty interesting. Still, ultimately I found The Last Station a bit too bland. I think what bugged me the most was the constant use of music, as if the film did not have enough faith in itself to move the audience, so it had to rely on the score. The director was there for a Q&A, but I thought it would be rude to ask him about the music...
