'Anna Karenina' (Nov. 16)

Short Story:
Based on Leo Tolstoy's classic novel, Anna Karenina's title character (Keira Knightley) finds herself wanting more from the high-profile life she leads. She's comfortably married to a high-ranking government official (Jude Law), with whom she has a son, but it isn't until she meets Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) that she feels a renewed spark of passion. What's a girl to do? Engage in a publicly scandalous affair with Vronsky and shatter her reputation, of course!

What They're Saying:
"This tight and pacy telling of a 900 page-plus novel touches a number of its important bases but lacks emotional depth, moral resonance and the simple ability to allow its rich characters to experience and drink deeply of life." -- The Hollywood Reporter

Good for Kids?
Anna Karenina earned an R-rating for sexuality and violence, so younger viewers should keep away from the film this weekend. It's also based on an 1877 Russian novel, which is a little less entertaining than Dr. Seuss.
