Keira Knightley Talks Anna Karenina
Cast and director on their Russian epic

submit to reddit

In Joe Wright's dizzying new Tolstoy adaptation Anna Karenina, Keira Knightley follows in the gilded footsteps of Greta Garbo, Vivien Leigh and Sophie Marceau in portraying fur-coated Russian heroine. So refined on the surface, yet bursting with emotion, her performance is an impressive addition to the character's roll of honour. So Empire did the obvious thing and galloped over to her hotel to ask her about... well, Mark Ruffalo. But then we did spoke to everyone else - Joe Wright, Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson included - about 19th century Russia, so that seemed only reasonable.
