Opening

The Last Station—Adapted from the novel by Jay Parini, The Last Station follows the end of Russian author Leo Tolstoy's life. The deteriorating Tolstoy (Christopher Plummer) and his wife Sofya (Helen Mirren) are at odds over whether Leo's considerable fortune from Anna Karenina and War and Peace will go to the Russian people or to Sofya and the couple's many children. When a young member of the Tolstoy movement (James McAvoy) is sent by Leo's publisher (Paul Giamatti) to live on the Tolstoy estate, Leo must confront his conflicting beliefs and his ultimate legacy. Directed by Boise's Michael Hoffman (One Fine Day, The Emperor's Club). (R) Flicks

Shutter Island—Leonardo DiCaprio teams up again with director Martin Scorsese in this thriller based on the 2003 novel by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone, Baby, Gone). Two U.S. marshals (Mark Ruffalo, DiCaprio) probe the disappearance of a patient from an infirmary for the criminally insane on a secluded island in Massachusetts. Violent weather, deranged patients and bizarre hallucinations imprison the marshals on the island and in their own minds. Ben Kingsley costars as the hospital's sinister chief physician.
