    Our most esteemed living playwright adapts the most famous love story ever written in the screenplay for the new Focus Features film Anna Karenina, directed by Joe Wright, starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law. Tolstoy’s brilliant novel, tracing the tragic love affair between Count Vronsky and the unhappily married Anna, has moved readers for generations. Now, award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard re-imagines what Vladimir Nabokov called “one of the greatest love stories in world literature” for the screen. In an impeccable match of talent between source and adaptation, Stoppard projects Tolstoy’s powerful contrasts between city and country, love and death, happiness and unhappiness. The result is beautiful, stirring, and at once old and new. A special introduction by Stoppard offers a glimpse into the process behind his remarkable interpretation.

    More than twenty years ago, Jack Slavin (Daniel Day-Lewis) walked away from the mainstream to live a more deliberate life. But the island commune he began in hopes of a better future has long since imploded, and he is now one of its final residents. Jack's only companion is his sixteen-year-old daughter, Rose (Camilla Belle), whom he has carefully sheltered from the outside world. Now, beset by terminal illness, encroaching developers, and Rose's emerging womanhood, Jack faces troubling questions about the days ahead.In an attempt to provide his daughter with the kind of family she's never known, Jack invites Kathleen (Catherine Keener), the woman he's been secretly seeing on the mainland, and her sons to live with them. But Rose feels betrayed rather than comforted, and lashes out with a willful retribution that places her innocence on the battlefield and Kathleen's safety in danger. His carefully constructed world thrown into chaos, Jack finds himself trapped between two headstrong women and forced to take action.With The Ballad of Jack and Rose, filmmaker Rebecca Miller has created a powerful and poetic third feature about a man who has cut himself off from a society that refuses to live up to his standards, and a young girl's sudden coming-of-age.
