Passion. Politics. Poetry. Philosophy. Set against the sweeping backdrop of twentieth-century Russia, with a rich and beautiful score of music by Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich, Akhmatova: The Heart Is Not Made of Stone tells the tale of the meeting of two cultural giants – the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova (McLaughlin) and the British philosopher Isaiah Berlin (Holm). That fateful meeting, tinged with romance and risk, set off a flood of repercussions that plunged Akhmatova ever deeper into one of the darkest periods in modern history.
