This six minute clip from Anna Karenina gives us a glimpse at Joe Wright's unique interpretation

Jul. 23, 2012by: Alex Maidy

There are only so many times you can film a classic novel without it feeling like you are going through the motions. Every now and then you need to do something unique. Baz Luhrmann successfully moved Shakespeare to a contemporary setting with ROMEO + JULIET. But, how do you make the material unique without changing the source material?

Joe Wright's ANNA KARENINA is true to the Tolstoy novel and incorporates an interesting motif to make the film a unique experience. The film itself is treated like a play in a theater. As you can see in this six minute clip from the film, the story we are watching on film is happening on a stage within the movie. Very unique. Bravo, Mr. Wright.

Check out the clip below.

Plot: The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.

Directed by Wright, written by Tom Stoppard, and starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfayden, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, and Alicia Vikander, ANNA KARENINA opens November 9th, 2012.

Hard to get past the fact that they're trying to make some grand point about the aristocratic Russian culture and yet have all of them speaking english.

This has already started receiving a lot of Oscar talk and I'm not buying it. These sort of dry period pieces are exactly what has made the Oscars stale and irrelevant. It's so cliche and uninteresting to me. And the 'filmed-onstage' dynamic was also done with Lars von Trier's Dogville - a film I downright loathe. So I'm not sure I will be checking this one out. Meh.
