Anna Karenina

Costuming was lovely. Characters all attractive to look at. Substantively the film was a disappointment, using some of the core themes of a classic novel to deliver of story of unfaithfulness and retribution without any insights into the characters other than they do everything with style (of the period?).

SEMI MUSICAL FEEL TO IT...SEMI IMPRESSED

I was somewhat disappointed with the music and cinematography arrangement. I was expecting to see something that felt like a drama with an interesting historical lesson. However, what I got was a story with the kind of music from a production like Annie. I almost thought someone was going to be flying across the screen or something. I like some musicals... just not what I expected when I bought my ticket.

OMG--It Was Awful!

The 2 1/2 stars that it received was far too generous. Everything about it was dreadful--especially the script, and casting. Don't waste your time--it was almost laughable.

There was so much to see, I could have watched it again. I think this movie was well done.

Unique setting/presentation and well done!!

My daughter and I went to see this over the weekend and we both enjoyed it alot. At times I laughed, but mostly I was drawn into the dramatic presentation of the story! The costumes and jewelry were exquisite and stunning!! It was unique in that some of the setting was done as a stage effect. I have never seen any other movie done this way. And there were a few parts that seemed like a musical. Keira Knightly gave an excellent performance! I have never read the book or seen other movie adaptations of the story. I was impressed by this one though and will most likely buy the movie for my collection when it comes out as a dvd. I say "definitely go see it!"
