Anna Karenina

Thank you for posting, Jayne. Weisz already played a variation on Anna this year in "The Deep Blue Sea." The movie and her performance were a bit disappointing for this viewer, but both are worth checking out.

I've concluded that Mr. Wright is Britain's Stephen Spielberg for costume dramas

He wishes. :)

This film does not seem to be getting much love in terms of nominations/year-end best of lists. No SAG nominations, no awards from various film critics associations, to my kjnowledge. I suspect it may get nominations for non-acting categories, like costumes.

It won for best costume design.

Durran has been nominated three times before – in 2006 for Pride & Prejudice and 2008 for Atonement, both directed by Anna Karenina's Joe Wright – but this is her first success.

I tend to agree with cubanmiamiboy that the movie was overdressed, especially the leading lady, but often as not that's what gets recognized at awards time.

f.y.i. Colleen Atwood designed the costumes for Ratmansky's recent FROM FOREIGN LANDS for SFB.

Thanks. I thought that name rang a bell. Atwood has won three Academy Awards, I see. Not bad going.
