Director Joe Wright Talks About “Anna Karenina”

Uploaded on Tuesday 13 November 2012


Director Joe Wright is a good storyteller. From “Pride and Prejudice” to “Hanna,” he evokes emotion through visuals and expressive use of audio (remember the typewriter sound effects in “Atonement?”). The director is back, and reteams with his “Atonement” muse, Keira Knightley, for the fantastic romantic drama, “Anna Karenina.” In this interview:

• What made him want to use the movable set pieces
• How his set became part of the character ensemble
• What made him want to do a big screen version of one of the greatest stories of all time?
• How the film, like the book, left us all hanging
• The realization of the character Levin
• The many faces of love
• The film’s resonating line – will you die for love – will Joe Wright die for love?
• The anti-heroine in all of us
