An Evening with Joe Wright

Since making his feature directorial debut in 2005 with an impeccable, Oscar-nominated take on Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, Joe Wright has quickly established himself one of the brightest young filmmakers on either side of the Atlantic—a reputation bolstered by the Oscar-winning Atonement (2007), the sleek teen assassin thriller Hanna (2011), and now his latest: a visionary adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina that marks Wright’s third teaming with the extraordinary Keira Knightley. We are delighted to welcome Wright for this special evening featuring a preview screening of Anna Karenina, an onstage discussion, and an encore screening of Atonement.
