It's not all about the accents. She's played a very wide range of roles throughout her career.

this and this.

i recently saw the trailer for "the devil's double". dominic cooper plays the son of sadam hussein, uday hussein, and his double latif yahia. of course he speaks english - with an arab accent. it makes no sense whatsoever.
the same applies to the cornenberg movie: c.g. jung was swiss, freud was austrian, spielrein was russian. i have no problem with british/international actors playing these characters, but just let them speak normal english, because the original characters didn't speak english (to each other) anyway, so why pretend they did?
She wasn't laughed at.

Re: Knightley to adopt English accent for Anna Karenina

Its a movie based on a work of fiction. If you want authentic or realistic than you are looking in the wrong place

Re: Knightley to adopt English accent for Anna Karenina

I never understood that whole accent business. What's realistic about it? If the movie takes place in Russia and everyone speaks English, then we're to assume that English stands in for Russian, right? So why would they then have accents? Makes no sense and is offensive to people from that country, because let's face it, when people fake a foreign accent it's never perfect and always slightly offensive, at least. Leave fake accents to comedy and drop it from drama.

Imagine Romeo and Juliet with Italian accents. It would be absurd.

Oh man that's deprived viewers of a good few laughs.

At least I can still giggle at her chin-acting!

I can't imagine Knightley as Anna Karenina. She looks too young I think and to skinny Anna was super sexy

Re: Knightley to adopt English accent for Anna Karenina

KK as Anna Karenina? I guess most folk won't have seen other versions, but KK couldn't touch Julie Christie in Dr Zhivago and has pretty much been the same in every role. I guess it will be a very demure portrayal. But in think she's too young anyway, but of course actresses are getting younger and younger recently.

Re: Knightley to adopt English accent for Anna Karenina

I don't agree with casting KK as Anna Karenina, but I don't care.

As long as they do justice to the ice-skating scene of Levin and Kitty, I won't say anything

Re: Knightley to adopt English accent for Anna Karenina

I've never seen a Russian version, but I heard it's the best one. I saw two other versions, one with Vivian Leigh (not bad, but I wasn't impressed) + some awful version. For some reason, I guess it won't be a lot different this time.
