Don't yawn yet.
Granted, after a century of adaptations, we have a right to be tired of Tolstoy's Russian society wife, Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley), who ditches her life for playboy Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). But surely there's room in our hard, literary hearts for a film this audacious?
To emphasize the artifice of Anna's world, director Joe Wright and writer Tom Stoppard set much of the film onstage, the actors gliding as if choreographed. It's like a musical, minus the singing.

That's one full house!
The Soho House celebrated the second day of the Toronto Film Festival on Friday with parties for Imogene, The Master and Anna Karenina.
Trudie Styler was one of the first guests to arrive. Wearing a white dress, Styler – who co-produced Imogene – sipped on a Grey Goose Le Fizz cocktail and happily greeted Kristen Wiig and Darren Criss, who star in the film.
Upstairs, The Master star Amy Adams arrived in an elegant black dress and spent most of the party chatting with guests.
Julianne Moore was also spotted mingling with guests and relaxing after a busy day of festival activities.
Meanwhile at the Anna Karenina bash, Keira Knightley – who wore a black Elie Saab Haute Couture gown – spent most of the evening talking with costar Aaron Johnson and his wife, filmmaker Sam Taylor Wood.
Nearby, Jude Law enjoyed a Grey Goose cocktail as he laughed with friends.
On Saturday, Soho House hosted an event following the premiere of Silver Linings Playbook: The film's star Bradley Cooper held court on a corner couch, snacking and chatting with other guests.
Chris O'Dowd and new wife, Dawn Porter were also in attendance and enjoyed seafood salads, meatballs and other light fare.
Woody Harrelson happily posed for photos with fans, while Alexander Skarsgard enjoyed a beer with female friend.
Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul – in town to promote Smashed – also made the scene, chatting with fans and fellow stars alike. He even recounted when he and fiancé Lauren Parsekian saw Sally Field on a recent flight and "were completely starstruck," says a source. "But she had the same reaction toward him!" Who wouldn't?
Also in the club: Happy couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, who hung out with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And Glee star Chord Overstreet, who was sporting a hat, chatted up Krasinski a bit.
