"We're Like Siblings Really" Says Director Joe Wright on Keira Knightley

The period film Anna Karenina - out today (Friday Nov 16) - based on Tolstoy’s classic novel - marks the third screen collaboration between Keira Knightley, who plays the title role, and director Joe Wright. He says: “We have a kind of shorthand and we know each other really well. We’re like siblings really.” Their previous actress-director efforts include Pride & Prejudice and Atonement - in both cases Knightley was in a leading role. Wright concedes at times it’s been tempestuous: “We kind of love each other very much - and sometimes she hates me too and we argue sometimes - and that’s okay.”
