As I expected, Aaron Johnson as Vronsky looks like an immature, sulky teenage boy. What is this? Tolstoy for tweenies? And the hair reminds me of Skeeter in The Help, and not in a good way.
Keira Knightley looks sufficiently tragic as Anna, but let’s wait and see how she does, acting-wise.
Okay, I was wrong before, Jude Law does look old enough to play Karenin. The beard helps, and of course the receeding hairline. Wow, I really hadn’t noticed he’s grown so …. mature.
Weird, this looks like they are dancing on stage, instead of during a ball or a party.
Other actresses who played Anna in the past:
Vivien Leigh in Anna Karenina (1948 film)
Sophie Marceau in Anna Karenina (1997 film). Yup, that’s Sean Bean as Vronsky. Call me shallow, but I’d much, much rather have this Vronsky.
Helen McCrory in Anna Karenina (2000 TV miniseries).
