Anna Karenina: A New Take On A Classic

I've just seen director Joe Wright's version of "Anna Karenina" written for the screen by Tom Stoppard.  In my opinion it will receive nominations (and probably wins)  for Golden Globes & Academy Awards for both Art Direction and Costume Design.

Both director and screenwriter were interviewed recently on
PBS' Charlie Rose program.

In the lobby of my theatre was this huge tri-fold brochure, detailing the story, a chart of the characters and their relationships to one another, and features on both costume design 
and production design.

Entertainment Weekly recently previewed the lavish production as did The Hollywood Reporter.

Random House has just released Stoppard's screenplay in book form and the script is also available
on the web.

There is also a
Book-to-Film Reading Group Guide available to download.
