2012. United Kingdom. Directed by Joe Wright. "A sweeping drama about love and desire, compromise and adultery, social mores and self-realization, Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece of realist fiction has been adapted for the screen more than a dozen times. Yet it is safe to say that it has never before been realized with anything close to the imaginative brio of this latest incarnation from British director Joe Wright. With a script by playwright and Academy Award–winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard, glorious production design by Sarah Greenwood and a stunning performance by Keira Knightley (collaborating with Wright for the third time) in the title role, this Anna Karenina is both a faithful rendering of Tolstoy's novel and a brilliant piece of conceptually audacious showmanship" (Toronto International Film Festival).
