Domhnall Gleeson Talks ANNA KARENINA and Richard Curtis’ ABOUT TIME

     November 26, 2012

Domhnall-Gleeson-Anna-Karenina-interview

Joe Wright’s adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s classic novel Anna Karenina is now playing in theaters.  The film takes place in late 19th century Russian society, and stars Keira Knightley as an adulterer who questions her happiness.  In true Wright fashion, this isn’t exactly a straightforward adaptation; the director has set much of the film in a lush theater that uses over 100 interconnected sets to allow the action to move fluidly through various settings.  The film also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, and Olivia Williams.  For more on Anna Karenina, here’s Matt’s review, five clips, and all our previous coverage.

At the press day, I spoke to Domhnall Gleeson.  We talked about how he prepared for the role, when he found out Joe Wright was changing the way he wanted to tell the story and his thoughts on the change, collaborating with Wright and his unique camera angles, and more.  In addition, we also talked about Richard CurtisAbout Time, which also stars Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, for more Anna Karenina coverage, here are my video interviews with Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson and Matthew Macfadyen.
