Kiera Knightley and Aaron Johnson are Anna and Vronsky, and they fall in love while waltzing around impossibly gorgeous Russian ballrooms, wearing impossibly gorgeous 19th century fashions, and looking, well, impossibly gorgeous. Jude Law plays Anna’s disagreeable husband Alexei, which is startling, to say the least. At what point in his career did he stop being a “Vronsky” and become an “Alexei”? I can’t quite put my finger on it. Ten years ago HE would have been the love interest and someone like John Malkovich would have been the cold-hearted husband. I guess the lesson here is to appreciate youth while we have it, and to appreciate Aaron while he can still make us gasp with just one smoldering glance.
