Count Alexander Rostov (Ewan McGregor) returns to Russia after the Russian Revolution, where he finds that his gilded past places him on the wrong side of history. Spared immediate execution due to a poem praising the revolution that's attributed to him, 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. They take all of his money, but luckily he has a secret cache. 

There, he meets Nina (Alexa Goodall), who has discovered a key that opens all the doors in the hotel. She shows him secret passageways and rooms behind rooms, where he discovers more about what's going on in the world. He also meets an actress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and old friends he knew before the revolution. Although his room is cold, he's allowed to pass his time by dining in the hotel's beautiful restaurant, having his hair trimmed once a week by the barber who still refers to him as "Your Excellence," and teaching Nina, who's fascinated by princesses and the royal life. 

An adaptation of Amor Towles' internationally best-selling novel.
