'A Gentleman in Moscow'

Based on the novel of the same name by Amor Towles, "A Gentleman in Moscow" follows aristocrat Count Alexander Rostov (Ewan McGregor) after he returns to Russia. The Bolshevik tribunal sentences him to house arrest during the October Revolution. Stripped of his material wealth and professional title, he now has to spend the rest of his life in the grand Moscow hotel, but things aren’t all so bad when he forms new friendships and discovers what romance truly feels like. "A Gentleman in Moscow" shows that community, courage, and love are more important than power.
