Anna Karenina - A Bold New Vision of an Epic Story of Love

Canada debut has been pushed to November 30 and it is now in Limited Release. Location is CHANGED to South Edmonton Common movie theatre.

The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.

The 2012 movie adaptation of Anna Karenina debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 7.

REVIEW by THE STAR PHOENIX

"Joe Wright’s version, based on a script by Tom Stoppard, is a highly stylized version. It’s set in a theatre where the characters act out their tragedy, moving in and out of wooden sets and clearly artificial backgrounds. At a grand ball, the dancers all freeze as Anna (Keira Knightley) and her lover-to-be, Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) waltz into danger. A train to Moscow is a snow-covered model."

I love it when theatre and film meet!

    Many themes such as "the marriage infidelity double standard", loveless marriage, marital duties, lust v love, judgmental gossip, and even the double standard of men having casual encounters v women being ostracized for the same behaviour, passion v mundane aspects of marriage. Spoiler question only for those who see the movie..............

    did soldier boy go back to his "playboy" game with the young lady/girl in the carriage?
    A very complex character portrayed by Keira knightly.

    Note: We won't be hosting a pre-event at L'Azia or at South Common as it's difficult to organize such a large group. After the movie, whoever wants to go and chat at a place nearby can do so as more of an ad hoc thing. Cheers!

      Forgot one thing - I will be wearing a sunflower on my coat for identification. The lobby at South Common is very large and busy, please get your ticket and go in to the theatre. I will stand near the doors to where Anna Karenina is playing. Send an email [masked] if you have trouble locating me or one of your other hosts.

    Hello! Anna Karenina is not playing at Empire Theatres City Centre. The film is in Limited Release so it's only at South Edmonton Common this week. Your fellow hosts and I have discussed a plan. Rather than change the date again, the event is being moved to Cineplex Odeon @ South Edmonton Common. Meet time is 7 pm in the lobby outside the theatre. Show starts at 7:30 pm. I'm not familiar with South Common so a meet-up spot close to the movie theatre doors is my best guess. Thank you. Victoria, Maria,
    and Nelson

    Hello,

    This is my very first meetup event that I'm attending and I'm looking forward to meeting you all! Here's hoping this movie isn't a tear jerker, I probably won't make the greatest first impression if I'm crying on one of your shoulders...

    I've had a few requests to make this an evening event so I've moved start time to 6:30 pm, pending actual movie times posted by Empire Theatres.

    I know that times for this movie aren't posted yet, but I really hope that we go in the evening! I am going to an accordion concert/fundraiser that afternoon, and would love to see this movie, too!

    I`d be interested in going, but I need to know what time the film actually starts, as I don`t get off work until 3:30 and might not actually be able to get there in time for a 4 pm start.....

    • Victoria B.

      Hi Sandy, it was great to finally meet you yesterday. The time is a placeholder since the schedule is not posted. Once the times are posted, I will make sure we go to one of the later afternoon or early evening shows closer to 6 pm so you can join us. Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
