It was 2005 when I sat in a theatre and watched Joe Wright’s take on “Pride & Prejudice” and I immediately fell in love with it. The director’s fresh, romantic and stylish take on Jane Austen’s beloved story is truly one of a kind. I’ve probably seen the film more than Joe Wright himself.
Now, Wright has taken on Tolstoy’s classic tale, “Anna Karenina,” and he uses his unique vision to bring the story to life on-screen.
Wright discusses how and why he shot the film the way he did, what it’s been like to work with Keira Knightley and the novel he would love to turn into a movie.
