Rasputin 1996
He Was A Magician. A Madman. A Savior And Seducer....
Plot: HBO biopic about the infamous "mad monk" Rasputin from the court of Tsar Nicholas in Russia.
Story: In 1910s Russia, Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra find their son Alexei, sole heir to the Romanov dynasty, suffering from hemophelia and conventional medicine failing to help him. Alexandra looks into finding holistic treatment and finds Father Grigori Rasputin, a destitute monk who claims he had a vision from the Virgin Mary telling him that the Tsar needed him. Though Nicholas and the royal doctor are both skeptical of Rasputin's alleged healing abilities, young Alexei quickly bonds with the charleton/prophet, so he remains in the Royal Court. But Rasputin's constant boozing and womanizing angers the aristocracy and worsens the already unstable tensions between Nicholas and his subjects. With the seeds of revolution brewing, it becomes increasingly apparent that a bad end awaits for the entire Royal Family.
Did you know: The film's cliffhanger ending suggests Alexei may have survived the massacre at Ipatev House, as his body (along with one of his sisters') had never been recovered. However, some 11 years after this film's release, remains found near the Ipatev House site were unearthed and confirmed to be Alexei's, thus rendering this film's ambiguous finale anachronistic.
