Love. Easily the most destructive emotion known to man, yet also it’s most exhilarating. And sometimes, when it’s practiced from behind high powered binoculars while perched in a tree, kind of creepy.
Luckily Joe “Atonement”Wright chooses not to showcase that particular brand of love (phew) in his adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, Anna Karenina, but he certainly covers the first two and everything in between, as these 8 new posters for the sweeping period romance attests.
The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.
While there’s already been plenty of Oscar buzz surrounding the likes of Argo, The Master and Lincoln, I wouldn’t be surprised if come Awards night, there are couple of names up on screen from this production. Wright has a habit of producing sweeping, breathtakingly beautiful films, and judging by the trailers as well as the early reviews, this appears to be no different, only with an added operatic flair that will probably ensconce it even further into the Academy’s graces.
The film gets a limited release on November 16, which still gives them enough time to whip up that “creepy love” poster.
