Anna Karenina

Film Father
When my wife heard I was reviewing Anna Karenina, she asked, “How many times are they going to make that?” (Ironically, my wife wouldn’t mind an annual remake of Pride and Prejudice.) The answer to her question, I suppose, is, “As many times as someone has a unique way of showing it.” Director Joe Wright has staged a sumptuous version of the Russian classic about a married woman who visits Moscow and begins a relationship with another man. The movie has the artifices of a stage play with moving sets, fanciful transitions, and stylized performances.
