Though I can't really discuss the film
because of the studio embargo imposed until the release date, November 16, I thought
I'd share this observation about director Joe Wright and screenwriter Tom
Stoppard's adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." The film has confused some because of its structure, a kind of play within the
film with stage sets, musical numbers, and other artifices.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY (cited on A-Word-A-Day by Anu Garg):
"It is well to know something of the manners of various
peoples, in order more sanely to judge our own, and that we do not think that
everything against our modes is ridiculous, and against reason, as those who
have seen nothing are accustomed to think."
