The Last Station

Last night I saw the preview screening of “The Last Station,” a movie based on a novel by Prof. Jay Parini of the English Department. When it comes out (likely in December), go see it in theaters! It stars Helen Mirren, Christopher Plummer, and James McAvoy. The short clip below doesn’t quite do it justice, but worth a quick look:

  1. Another Middlebury connection for James McAvoy: he is currently filming ‘The Conspirator’ directed by Robert Redford. McAvoy plays Frederick Aiken, the defense attorney of Mary Surratt, one of the conspirators in Lincoln’s assassination. The real Frederick Aiken was from Hardwick, and attended Middlebury College from 1855 – 1857.

  2. Robin, that’s very interesting. I recently interviewed James McAvoy, and I’ve got to say, I think his teaming with Redford on The Conspirator will be brilliant. He had some interesting things to say about it.
