This new adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy classic sees Keira Knightley in the title role with support from Jude Law. It looks to be all grand costumes and stunning set pieces. A magical tour of deception, romance and lust. The film has been adapted from the original text by Shakespeare in Love screenwriter Tom Stoppard and is being directed by Joe Wright (Atonement/Pride & Prejudice) so hopefully, fans of the book will not be disappointed...
Based on the true account of author Matt Bondurant's grandfather and granduncles, this is a tale of bootlegging and alcohol during the Prohibition era in the USA. The film stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain - OK the cast list is insane! It promises to be a wonderfully sexy and violent mix.
Now is Good
This gorgeous YA novel, written by Jenny Downham (originally titled 'Before I Die') opens with teenage Tessa considering how nice it would be to have a boyfriend she could hang up in her wardrobe and take out whenever she needed it. The story itself is about this young girl as she deals with a terminal diagnosis by thinking about everything she wants to do before she dies. The film stars Dakota Fanning as Tessa alongside Olivia Williams, Paddy Considine, Kaya Scodelario and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse). It's probably a safe bet to say you might need a few tissues!
