the romanovs: an hbo mini-series
i’ll pretend, i tell myself. pretending is safer than believing.

They came for us at night. We didn’t know where we were going. Father keeps a stern face, but mother clutches at his arm and his eyes, too, show fear. Alexei is crying, and Anastasia tries very hard not to. They’re both so strong. Tatiana keeps quiet beside me, and I feel her tremble. When they push us inside the cars, Maria gasps, then sobs, until I, too, can’t hold back my tears. I look over my shoulder, past the armed men behind us, out the small window at the back of the car. The night is dark, but I know that the Palace stands there, shrouded in mist and the changing tide. I’m afraid.

The fall of an empire; the last days of the Romanov family through the eyes of Princess Olga. Sean Bean as Nicholas II, Vera Farmiga as Alexandra, Jennifer Lawrence as Olga, Elizabeth Olsen as Tatiana, Freya Mavor as Maria, Hailee Steinfeld as Anastasia, Asa Butterfield as Alexei.
