An excerpt of the interview with Keira Knightly about her role as Anna Karenina:
Q: Is that why you think it (Anna Karenina’s character) still resonates to this day?
I think it resonates to this day because it’s about love and not just romance or just that happy bit. Not love in the way it’s all sold to us but love as the thing that we’ve been fascinated and obsessed with for centuries. Love is that thing that we are all after and yet can destroy us and is painful. It can be madness and can be joy and can be happiness. It looks at the whole thing. I think that’s why it’s so complex. It has more questions within it than it has answers. We never manage to answer the questions. Love is something that is so inexplicable and so complex and strange.
And that’s why I must watch this movie when it comes out!
