Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

I'm a fan of Keira, but she gave us nothing new in her portrayal of Anna. It was nearly note for note her performance in The Duchess. She didn't deserve an Oscar nomination this time. She needs to diversify, lay off the period pieces for a while and do some modern roles.

Having said that, I still feel that the story of Anna Karenina is very difficult to film for modern younger audiences, and this version added nothing new.

Extremely so.

Anna Karenina is so much more than she can offer. Vivien Leigh was much better.

Re: FIRST LOOK: Keira Knightley is Anna Karenina

Just felt like pointing out this random factoid:

A paperback edition of Anna Karenina was recently released in my b00tifull kawntree, and the editors went for a film tie-in for the cover, choosing an image of Anna Karenina from a film. Yet it wasn't Knightley they picked.



So beautiful it hurts.
