Documentary about the life and work of Leo Tolstoy. Film-maker Alan Yentob takes an epic train ride through Tolstoy’s Russia, examining how Russia’s greatest novelist became its greatest trouble-maker.

Guided by his astonishingly honest and confessional diaries, he travels through the places that played a role in Tolstoy’s life. What he finds is a difficult, restless, ferociously brilliant man with an appetite for causing trouble for himself, his family and Russia. His fundamentalist views on God, religion, pacifism and politics caused discussions and riots to break out. The Trouble with Tolstoy shows why Tolstoy was more than a great novelist; he was one of Russia’s most persistent anti-authoritarian moral thinkers.
