Anna Karenina Film Review

I recently watched the 2012 film adaptation of Tolstoy's classic Anna Karenina. Directed by Joe Wright, it netted $69m at the box office. Might be a bit late, but here's my film review:

It wasn't a bad film. The period costume stood out (excellent), but I couldn't believe they'd reduced the mighty Tolstoy to such a sugarplum treatment; more like Moulin Rouge. And the very irritating musical paraphrasing of Rimsky Korsakov and Tchaikovsky grated. And Kiera Knightly looked more like ET than a love interest of two influential men. Even Jude Law was a bit beige. In fact, it was a rubbish film.
