Brooklyn Blackout and Russia

The weather was grey and miserable and darkness descended by 3:30pm. There was nothing else for it than to have a slice of the delicious Brooklyn Blackout cake from Dean and Deluca (washed down with Ronnybrook chocolate milk) and escape to old world Russia by watching the fantastic The Last Station. Oscar nominated, it’s a “historical drama that illustrates Russian author Leo Tolstoy’s struggle to balance fame and wealth with his commitment to a life devoid of material things”. With a stellar cast including Helen Mirren, James McAvoy and Christopher Plummer this is a fantastic watch and brightened up the day.
