Quotation: Anna says, “I was eighteen when I got married but it was not love.
Cast: Keira Knightly (The Duchess) as Anna, Jude Law (The Holiday) as Alexei Karenin, Aaron Johnson (Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging) as Count Vronsky
Directed by: Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice 2005)
Screenplay by: Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love)
Story: Anna is married. She’s not happy. Here comes the dashing Count Vronsky. The affair ends as cheerfully as most do in 19th century Russian novels.
Based on: Leo Tolstoy’s novel.
Worth Seeing? Keira Knightly again takes up the mantle of the period film. *shivers*
On the other hand, Tom Stoppard is writing the screenplay and Joe Wright is directing, so it’s likely to be witty and robustly paced.
