If you haven’t had a chance to see A LATE QUARTET, Thursday will be your last chance to see it at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open Joe Wright’s gorgeous adaptation of ANNA KARENINA. We will also hold THE SESSIONS and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER for one more week. (CHASING ICE – the stunningly incredible new documentary – is slated to open on Dec. 7…check out its website.) Showtimes for the remainder of this week can be found on our website.
Synopsis for ANNA KARENINA: “The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office successes Pride & Prejudice and Atonement, is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.” (Focus Features) Also starring Jude Law, this is a stunningly conceptual film. I saw it at its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and though it took me a few moments to adjust to its technique, I was eventually consumed by it.
