You Can't Ask Why About Love

  "All happy families are alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

This past weekend i saw "Anna Karenina". Let me tell you it has to be the most beautiful movie I have ever seen. It was all very theatrical. It takes place on stage. And as the scenes change the set changes. I thought that was brilliant  Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina, Jude Law as Count Alexei Karenin, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Count Vronsky. The cast was perfect. The set was amazing. The choreography was so elegant it had so much emotion. The costumes were superb. It really makes you think. Anna was a heroine but also the "bad guy" or antiheroine at the same time. She is the women, that girls usually dont want to be. She is very complex, like a fascination. And i think the movie really showed that there are concequences for everything you do. And even if you're happy with your decisions not everyone is going to be they are going to judge you. You admire Anna for her bravery. But in the end her conscience got to her, the guilt of everything killed her. The movie had an amazing story. I can not picture anyone playing Anna other than Keira Knightley, she did beyond an amazing job. Anna is very beautiful, and dark, and full of love & life but very manipulative at the same time. and Keira did a awesome job of balancing all of that i believe she deserves an Oscar for this preformance. Mr. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was devilishly and dangerously seductive with that sultry blue gaze beneath a mop of delicious blond curls. Jude Law was arrogant, and admirable as Karenin his character was a bit heartbreaking. He is a little dull, serious and emotionless, and i thought that was amazing for the audience to see that, and sympathize with him. (to think he was supposed to be 20 years older than Anna! lol) All in all it was a amazing movie i plan to see it again and buy it when it comes out on dvd & I recommend that you all go see it.
