By Elaine Feinstein.
On the bicentenary of his birth, this is the story of Alexander Pushkin, the undisputed father of RUSSIAn literature.
He was the son of a feckless aristocrat and descended from the African slave of Peter the Great.
A rebel, an exile and a reckless libertine, he died in the snow in a duel over his wife.
With Linus Roache and Emily Mortimer.
Director Erin Riley.
