Provided you have a burning interest in pretty visuals and less regard for the whys and wherefores of human behavior, this latest adaptation of Tolstoy's classic is a pleasant watch.

This sleek, Cliffs Notes version of a masterpiece is ... glossy and picture perfect on the surface and hollow at the core.

A copy of the paperback book should cost about as much as a movie ticket, and will provide a more lasting and worthwhile investment.

[Rose's] screenplay is a ragbag, nothing like a tragedy in which the nemesis is Time. And his casting!

Like its opening, Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina is half-successful.

Doesn't build strong relationships between the characters, relying instead on overheated words and performances to generate false intensity.

When [Anna and Vronsky] first lay eyes on each other at the train station in St. Petersburg, the only steam between them comes from the engine.
