Amor Towles in conversation

(Un)scripted: A Gentleman in Moscow

 – Wye Stage

The American novelist joins us for a conversation about the TV adaptation of his 2016 novel. He discusses the story and its re-presentation, with clips from the Paramount+ limited series starring Emmy Award-winning actor Ewan McGregor.

In A Gentleman in Moscow, a Russian aristocrat in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution finds that his gilded past places him on the wrong side of history. Spared immediate execution, he is banished by a Soviet tribunal to an attic room in the opulent Hotel Metropol, threatened with death if he ever sets foot outside again. As the years pass and some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history unfold outside the hotel’s doors, the Count’s reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. As he builds a new life within the walls of the hotel, he discovers the true value of friendship, family and love.
