Focus Features 11.14.2012

In USA TODAY, Elysa Gardner spoke to Tom Stoppard, the acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, who penned the screenplay for Joe Wright's adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's great novel ANNA KARENINA. It's a fascinating piece that explores the dynamic interactions between two really creative minds. While Stoppard wrote his screenplay before Wright decided to stage much of his film inside a theater, the script stayed the same. For both artists, ANNA KARENINA explores the universal theme of love. As Stoppard notes, "in all its forms -- between brothers, lovers, mother and child, husband and wife."
