Christopher Plummer, as Leo Tolstoy, and James McAvoy as his secretary, in Michael Hoffman's “Last Station.”
Valentin and Tolstoy walk together in the woods. . TOLSTOY I couldn't write. I was distracted I think... I had a dream last night, about a Tartar girl I knew in the war. VALENTIN A girl who died? TOLSTOY No, no...A girl I had sexual intercourse with... Sometimes we did it twice a day. Valentin sneezes. TOLSTOY God bless...I've never forgotten our time together, the position of our bodies, the taste of her... VALENTIN You shouldn't torture yourself. It was a long time ago. Tolstoy laughs out loud. TOLSTOY Torture? You are a virgin, aren't you.
