Doctor Zhivago (2002) short review

Keira Knightley is surprising unannoying in this adaptation, Hans Matheson does a good job portraying the title character, and the miniseries format allows the story to take its time — and I actually cried a little at the end. Very good sets and scenery. The costuming, being mostly peasanty, wasn’t anything to get excited about, although there were a few nice dresses on Tonya.
