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!"

Gorgeous but otherwise......

If sets, costumes and jewelry are your thing, don't miss it. Otherwise it's turgid, and miscast in it's most important role--Count Vronsky. Jude Law's Karenina may be stiff and formal, but he's kind, Arron Taylor-Johnson is foppish and insipid. Why would she leave her son, her life's love, for a fop?

Excellent movie even if only 1/10th of book

This was the love story and not the philosophical treatise on nearly everything. I am not much for love stories as the major theme, but this is among the best. The staging was extremely creative and for that alone it is a Must Go.

Good movie. Different presentation for a classic. Costumes were wonderful and so were the scenes. Worth to see with your girlfriends. Guys might not appreciate it.

A beautiful, terrible movie

I won't insult chicks by calling this movie a chick flick. It's just a movie for shallow snobs. OK, the visuals were beautiful, and the acting was at least average. But the story only vaguely resembled Tolstoy's classic; the screenplay was TERRIBLE; and the direction was pretentious. SAVE YOUR MONEY. THIS MOVIE IS A WASTE OF TIME.
