Can't wait to see it again. It is beautiful - visually and aurally stunning. The staging and cinematography are breathtaking. The themes are universal. The dance at the ball when Vronsky and Anna become literally and figuratively entangled uses dance narratively as it has never been done before. Tom Stoppard's adaptation distills this epic story down to two essential imperatives in life: love and forgive. Knightley is ravishing and heart-breaking. The rest of the cast is equally good. It is transcendant.
