If you want to see a ridiculous movie that thinks it's a play go to see this. We walked out after 15 minutes. It's like they are trying to win a cinematolgraphy award with no substance. If I wanted to see live theater I would go to a play not a movie. Worst movie of the year.

Beautifully staged, with an operatic feel. Knightly and Law do a wonderful job but the casting of Taylor-Johnson was off the mark. Vronsky is supposed to be the man Anna would risk all for but Taylor-Johnson's effete young soldier didn't inspire passion as much as puzzlement. Why would Anna throw everything away for him? A little hard to follow at times, it helps if one has read the book.

Good movie. It was interesting to see Joe Wright's interpretation of the story. The way they did the party scenes was not what I expected, but AWESOME. At the beginning I thought, "I hope this isn't how the entire movie is," but I left feeling like I had just witnessed some creative genius. A little disappointed with the sex scene because I went in expecting something akin to Atonement's. If you're into costume and set design, it's definitely worth going just for that — it was beautiful! My boyfriend and I loved it, but we think others probably will not feel the same way. Not necessarily a "must-see", but if you have the time and means I believe it's not to be counted as "missable".

The most beautiful movie I have seen this season. Very very special....great acting......everything about it will show your real movie making that takes you on a trip back in time and book.

Anna was a daring artistic mixture of stage play and reality, but the production was lost on me. What could have been an extraordinary motion picture left me cold with only the fine performance of the main actors to save it. My Bet? It will either go down as an artistic masterpiece or a colossal flop. The movie going public will decide. Pitchhiker, Sarasota FL
