To call the latest screen version of the classic Leo Tolstoy novel a "staging" is literal, since director Joe Wright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard present it as an actual production on a stage.
Keira Knightley reteams with "Pride and Prejudice" filmmaker Wright to play the title character, a diplomat's (Jude Law) wife who tries to help her brother (Matthew Macfadyen) with his marital problems ... only to run into some of her own when she becomes involved with a military man (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Kelly Macdonald ("Boardwalk Empire") and Olivia Williams also appear. *** (R: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
