Keria Knightley, as Anna, reads while Guro Nagelhus Schia, as her maid Annushka, helps with the dress in Anna Karenina (2012). In Joe Wright’s daringly stylized new version of “Anna Karenina,” he returns for the third time to use Keira Knightley as his heroine. She is almost distractingly beautiful here and elegantly gowned to an improbable degree. – Roger Ebert
“Being a performer, I feel so embarrassed about it, because we’re constantly seeing actors saying that they always wanted to be actors, and it has this reputation as being this thing that people long to do and they have great ambition and fire to become actors. And I feel embarrassed, because I never did. I still don’t. Every film I make is the last time I’m going to perform. Truly, truly, truly! And I also admit that I keep doing it, so it can be both. So I’m aware that I’m an odd one.” - Tilda Swinton
