Joe Wright directed Pride and Prejudizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Sorry. Drifted off there. Dude then did Atonemenzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Hanna was awesome. Joe Wright did that. His presence lent the film a freshness and energy rare in the action genre and it made me wonder what the man could do at the helm of a thriller or horror flick. I figured prestige pictures were his conduit to the mainstream.
His next film has been announced and it’s Anna Kareninzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Huh? Who’s in it? Jude Law. Aaron Johnson. Keira Knighlzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Here’s the plot, per the press release:
The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
