WATCH: Keira Knightley Sees Shades Of Modern Bullying In 'Anna Karenina'
Young women bullied by their peers into committing suicide has become a staple of today's news cycle, but as Anna Karenina demonstrates, it's hardly a new phenomenon. Whether you're talking about 19th-century Russian aristocrats or Midwestern teens in the age of Facebook, as Keira Knightley tells me, "The rules of society change, but the way that society works does not."
I sat down with Knightley and director Joe Wright to talk about their bold adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novel and its continued relevance in our contemporary digital world. Their passion for the material is as palpable as the film's lush production design.
