A Gentleman in Moscow

The bestselling, universally acclaimed novel by Amor Towles, A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW, tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov, whom a Bolshevik tribunal deems an unrepentant aristocrat in 1922 and sentences to house arrest in the opulent Hotel Metropol.  Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors.

Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery as he spends his life amongst the staff and guests of the hotel, who become his surrogate family over his thirty years at the Metropol.  At once a touching and nuanced character study, and the story of how an unlikely hero quietly and bravely resists an oppressive regime, A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW is a humorous, heartfelt, and gripping story.

A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW has sold millions of copies worldwide, remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 59 weeks following its 2016 publication, and became one of Barack Obama’s picks of the year.

A GENTLEMAN IN MOSCOW premieres March 29 on Paramount Plus in the UK, Canada and Australia, and in the US with the SHOWTIME plan.  Starring Ewan McGregor as the eponymous Gentleman.
