Lara - The Untold Story that Inspired Doctor Zhivago

Lara - The Untold Story that Inspired Doctor Zhivago

Overview

Lara is the heart-breaking true story of the passionate love affair between Boris Pasternak and Olga Ivinskaya that inspired Doctor Zhivago, one of the greatest literary love affairs of the 20th Century. The novel has sold in its millions yet the true love story that inspired it has never been fully explored - until now...

Oxford educated Anna Pasternak is the great neice of Boris Pasternak. She has had unprecedented access to both archival and family sources, crucially Olga’s daughter, Irina.

Lara is currently in development as a six-part television series with Liz Trubridge, producer of Downton Abbey.
