Anna Karenina is a 2012 British epic romantic drama film directed by Joe Wright. Adapted by Tom Stoppard from Leo Tolstoy’s 1877 novel. It earned four nominations at the 85th Academy Awards and six nominations at the 66th British Academy Film Awards. In addition, Anna Karenina garnered six nominations at the 17th Satellite Awards, including a Best Actress nod for Knightley and Best Adapted ScreenPlay for Stoppard.
Choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. There are several dance sequences in the film – which has been set within an elaborate theatrical environment with sumptuous designs and costumes and screenplay by Tom Stoppard – but particular attention has been paid to movement throughout, reflecting Director Joe Wright’s thinking: “Film is basically time and movement, so why not really think about that movement?”
