Review by: Robert Davidson on Dec. 03, 2010 :
Sonya’s War describes the somewhat tempestuous relationship between Tolstoy and his wife during the latter part of his life. It effortlessly captures the mercurial Sonya’s frustration at the perceived duplicity exercised by those around her and her sense of impending loss. It is sensitively written and charts the passage of the tragic events as they happen. A seriously, worthwhile read. Robert Davidson. The Tuzla Run

Review by: M. Louisa Locke on Dec. 02, 2010 :
I highly recommend Sonya’s War, which is a delightful screenplay that tells the fascinating story of the stormy relationship between Leo Tolstoy and his wife Sonya in the last year of Tolstoy’s life. I was swept up in battle between Sonya, who was desperate to hold onto her influence over her husband and his work, and those men and women who believed that Tolstoy and his work belonged to the people. I was quickly caught up in the intrigue and conflict, and Polansky did a marvelous job of portraying Sonya’s acts of manipulation and imbalanced mental state, yet creating great sympathy for a woman who has lost control of everything she holds dear.
