I watched Anna Karenina tonight with my dad. I love Keira Knightley and Joe Wright, and I love them together, but this film was weird. As my dad put it, it was like a musical with no songs. It was weirdly choreographed and while I could see what Mr. Wright was trying to do I don't think it worked. My dad's a huge Tolstoy fan and he just really disliked it. He said it didn't feel at all like Tolstoy and that the guy playing Vronsky was horribly miscast. I think Jude Law and Keira did a good job with what they had but what they had wasn't much. It was beautiful of course, as all of Mr. Wright's films are, but it was really lacking otherwise. For a talented director he really wasted some beautiful costumes, what was clearly a large budget, and a generally very good cast. And the screenplay was not very good at all.
