Period and Historical, Romance
There have been many adaptations of author Leo Tolstoy’s classic tale of forbidden love and betrayal, but none as ambitious or visually sumptuous as this stylised re-imagining by Brit director Joe Wright. Set almost entirely in a dilapidated theatre, the period drama boldly unfolds as if we were watching a stage play. Keira Knightley is luminous in the titular role of the 19th-century Russian aristocrat whose passionless marriage to an older statesman is turned upside down after she falls for handsome bachelor, Count Vronsky. A torrid affair follows, causing the rest of Anna’s world to tragically unravel, when she’s shunned by society for her adultery and then becomes increasingly possessive and paranoid about her young lover.
This intense 19th-century period drama from director Jane Campion sees feisty heroine Isabel enter a dangerous romance with decetiful Osmond.
