what the others say
"Pimped, primped and dressed to the nines, Joe Wright's Tols-toy story looks the business. Like a disappointing Christmas present, though, the pleasure quickly evaporates once you remove the shiny paper."
"If it doesn't ultimately engage your heart as it might, Anna Karenina is period drama at its most exciting, intoxicating and modern. Spellbinding."
"Wright is a special talent and the imagery is beautiful, but when it grates against the story, it becomes exasperating. And dull."
