This Movie Palette displays all of the striking colors from each scene of the movie Anna Karenina (2012). These colors combined give you a captivating masterpiece that truly captures the essence of the movie.
Director Joe Wright ('Pride and Prejudice,' 'Atonement,' 'Hanna') wrestled with these questions as he began prepping the latest screen treatment of 'Anna Karenina,' and at last came upon the clever and audacious idea of setting the drama largely within the confines of a theater and treating the piece as if it were a stage performance. The inventive notion suits the material well, considering its limited scope, and while at times the presentation feels awkward and more than a tad pretentious, it's all so beautifully and lyrically executed we forgive any hiccups in the suspension of disbelief. Above all, Wright respects the original source and wisely keeps this 'Anna' faithful to Tolstoy. (Screenwriter Tom Stoppard also deserves commendation for cramming as much of the novel as possible into the two-hour running time.) His unconventional technique, however, puts a fresh spin on an oft-told story, infusing it with an intriguing and beguiling contemporary flair that draws us in despite any reluctance.
Anna Karenina marks Mr. Wright's third Working Title movie with Focus and UPI, following the award-winning boxoffice successes Pride & Prejudice and Atonement. Also for Working Title and UPI, he directed The Soloist; also for Focus, he most recently directed the hit adventure thriller Hanna.
Keira Knightley, Academy Award-nominated for Pride & Prejudice, will star as Anna Karenina in her third collaboration with Mr. Wright. Ms. Knightley will be starring opposite two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law, as Anna's husband Aleksei Karenin; and Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy), as Count Vronsky. Rounding out the cast will be Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire), Matthew Macfadyen (Pride & Prejudice), Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1), Alicia Vikander (The Seventh Son), two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson, Olivia Williams (Hanna), and Ruth Wilson (Luther). 59ce067264
