A bleak story of the most vile selfish harlot since Scarlett O'hara; a Russian Scarlett and Rhett.

Anna Karenina is my favorite Russian novel (and one of my all-time favorite books, period), so I decided to give this adaptation a try. (I didn't particularly care for the more recent version with Keira Knightley and Jude Law.) Of course, there's only so much of a 900-page book that can be crammed into a 2-hour movie, but I loved this adaptation. Vivien Leigh was especially dazzling as Anna, and the cinematography and acting were overall excellent. This movie really captured the essence of Tolstoy's novel.

Strong on production value; fair to midland on content. Vivien Leigh translated the scorned outcast of woeful personal choices proficiently; she's the main reason I sought this version out. The film, as a whole, was rather forgettable, unfortunately. Anticipating the 2012 version with Keira Knightley.

Anna Karenina: "Why not turn out the lights... when there's nothing more to be seen..."
