- Quick review:
- Joe Wright’s lovely adaptation of the Tolstoy opus stars the filmmaker’s “Pride & Prejudice" and “Atonement" muse, Keira Knightley, as the Russian princess who tumbles into a passionate affair, jeopardizing her marriage and social standing. Shot in a theater – not just on its stage, but in the grand hall’s every nook and cranny – this is an interpretation full of deliberate artifice, all the better to let the real emotions burst through.
