Not necessarily ...

... The film fantasy of writers' lives. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

One of the things that helps The Last Station is that Tolstoy did run away from home at the end of his life and die in a train station shortly thereafter. In other words, the film has a solid basis in fact. But, as Dudley Do-Right was wont to remind us, it's a movie, not a substitute for Henri Troyat's biography.
