Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 10/01/2012
"It's a testament to the strength of the performances and of Wright's staging that the film retains its emotional urgency."
Rolling Stone - 11/22/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]hanks to director Joe Wright, ANNA KARENINA lifts off into the wild blue of the imagination..."
New York Times - 11/16/2012
"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."
Movieline - 11/16/2012
"From a filmmaking perspective, it's a gorgeous shadowbox of a production, filmed largely in a single location..."
Box Office - 11/12/2012
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."
Washington Post - 11/16/2012
"[An] ingenious, intoxicating adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novel, in which the author's dense tale of love, adultery, politics and aristocratic manners has been brilliantly re-imagined as light opera."
A.V. Club - 11/15/2012
"[A] new adaptation that streamlines the backpack-breaking novel, and most audaciously, stages its action as a stage production that doesn't attempt to hide its own theatricality."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/23/2012
"[Stoppard] supplies an excellently clean, delicately balanced script."

Product Description:

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.
