"Anna Karenina:" Beautiful but Boring
Review Summary: Ann and Les thought that this was absolutely gorgeous cinematically, but it was not enough to save the dull story by Leo Tolstoy.
Plot: In this retelling of Tolstoy's classic 19th century Russian romance, aristocratic Anna becomes a social outcast for choosing a dashing young count over her stuffy, old husband. (Runtime 129 minutes).
Director: Joe Wright
Writer: Tom Stoppard*
