Fresh: The Last Station is the kind of adult drama that I'm just thankful is still being made. Therefore, I was ecstatic to also find it to be rather good.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, October 21, 2010
Rotten: Despite its strong performances The Last Station is a bland and middle-of-the-road period film with faint literary pretensions.-Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy, April 10, 2010
Fresh: This handsome, well-tuned adaptation of Jay Parini's Tolstoy biography avoids being a dour subtitled slog by its strong casting, layered contrasts of love and duty, and admirable air of enthusiasm.-Ben McEachen, Sunday Times (Australia), April 08, 2010
Fresh: Despite all the bitterness and skulduggery, The Last Station is surprisingly warm and spirited in tone.-Evan Williams, The Australian, April 02, 2010
