Opening tomorrow is director Joe Wright’s adaptation of the classic Leo Tolstoy novel Anna Karenina. 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 a door and into a separate setting entirely. 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 Jude Law. We talked about what it was like to collaborate with Joe Wright and his unique camera angles, how he found out Wright wanted to tell the story in an unconventional way, the status of the 3rd Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr., and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.
