  • Director Joe Wright reteams with Keira Knightley for this version of ANNA KARENINA, which boasts a script by Tom Stoppard. Knightley stars as the title character, a Russian woman who cheats on her respected husband (Jude Law) with a young soldier (Aaron Johnson) and suffers greatly for her betrayal. Wright sets the action in a theater, often segueing from scene to scene by utilizing different spaces within the same set. ANNA KARENINA screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

  • Critic Reviews
    "It's a testament to the strength of the performances and of Wright's staging that the film retains its emotional urgency."
    Sight and Sound

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]hanks to director Joe Wright, ANNA KARENINA lifts off into the wild blue of the imagination..."
    Rolling Stone

    "It is risky and ambitious enough to count as an act of artistic hubris, and confident enough to triumph on its own slightly -- wonderfully -- crazy terms."
    New York Times

    "From a filmmaking perspective, it's a gorgeous shadowbox of a production, filmed largely in a single location..."

    4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] masterpiece of moving pieces, a dizzying and obscenely beautiful film that boils down Tolstoy's text to its most basic elements by making literal the theater of high society."
    Box Office

    "[An] ingenious, intoxicating adaptation of Leo Tolstoys novel, in which the authors dense tale of love, adultery, politics and aristocratic manners has been brilliantly re-imagined as light opera."
    Washington Post

    "[A] new adaptation that streamlines the backpack-breaking novel, and most audaciously, stages its action as a stage production that doesnt attempt to hide its own theatricality."
    A.V. Club

    "[Stoppard] supplies an excellently clean, delicately balanced script."
