Joe Wright's version of Tolstoy classic 'Anna Karenina' a hit-or-miss proposition ★★ 1/2
Like most alleged love-it-or-hate-it propositions, the new film version of "Anna Karenina" is neither. Rather, it's a half-success — a baldly conceptual response to the Leo Tolstoy novel, with a heavy theatrical framework placed around the narrative of girl meets boy, followed by girl meets train.
