I hesitated to watch this movie - which I rented first - because I thought nothing new could be added to a story so well known and because I do not particularly like Keira Knightley (still believe a more mature actress and possibly less waify could have done a more credible job). Still: it is a rather hipnotic movie and I am going to buy it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The music is haunting, the costumes a feast to the eyes, the cast fantastic, including Karenin, whom is portraied often as an old bore, but who is only a man with his principles but who deeply loves his wife. To see Ruth Wilson on screen was a joy, I adore her since her Jane Eyre, which I consider the best version ever!. Same for Michelle/Lady Mary! And Aaron Taylor, after a first rather underimpressing appearance, becomes sexier by the minute. The waltz at the ball was incredible, I want to learn to dance like that. Bottom line: absolutely brilliant movie.
