About the Movie
Academy Award® nominee Keira Knightley, Academy Award® nominee Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson dazzle in this stunning new vision of Leo Tolstoy’s epic love story. At the twilight of an empire, Anna Karenina (Knightley), the beautiful high-ranking wife of one of imperial Russia’s most esteemed men (Law), has it all. But when she meets the dashing cavalry officer Vronsky (Taylor-Johnson), there is a mutual spark of instant attraction that cannot be ignored. She’s immediately swept up in a passionate affair that will shock a nation and change the lives of everyone around her. From acclaimed director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) and Academy Award®-winning writer Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love) comes this visually enchanting masterpiece hailed by critics as “ecstatic” (Time), “rapturous” (MSN Movies) and “a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed!” (The Huffington Post)

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The metaphorical force of this conceit-insisting on the artifice of the social world that frowns on rapture-is not hard to grasp, but its frailty unsettles some of the actors.
Fresh: It's a half-success -- a baldly conceptual response to the Leo Tolstoy novel, with a heavy theatrical framework placed around the narrative of girl meets boy, followed by girl meets train.
Fresh: It's hard not to admire Wright's bold approach to Anna Karenina's story of longing and jealousy and societal condemnation.
Fresh: Thank goodness for Domhnall Gleeson's gentle turn as Oblonsky's friend Levin. The ginger-haired landowner is the movie's warmest figure.
This movie is incredible. I love the fact that it was shot in a theatrical way. The set and scenery was beautiful and the costume design is Oscar worthy. The movie stays true to the novel which I deeply appreciated . The dialogue was executed with perfection especially by Keira Knightly, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Jude Law. You should definitely give the movie a chance it's unique and beautiful.
Too artsy with no real emotional draw
I went into the theater ready to love this film. But I instantly got distracted by it being set on a STAGE then people walking out into the real world - it was very confusing and distracted from the plot. I sat through this whole film only to sit through this poorly paced mess of a film.
It looks good, but there is no substance to it. Do not recommend. There are few movies I hate this is one of them.
A piece of art one of the best knightleys performances !!
