Anna Karenina on Film

Surely Keira Knightley isn’t supposed to evoke Anna. She’s all wrong for the role. Anna is voluptuous and sensual, curvy we might say. At the outset of the story, everyone falls in love with Anna to one degree or another. (I know I did.) Knightly is angular and brittle – one imagines her living in a hermetically sealed, climate controlled glass case. Can you imagine children hanging off of her? Or ambitious and amoral cavalry officers abandoning their careers to have her?
