½ Anna Karenina Joe Wright’s adaptation of the Tolstoy classic staggers under the weight of a dazzling, hermetically sealed visual style that fails to connect with our emotions; the entire movie seems to take place in a snow globe. The cast, led by Keira Knightley, is good, although Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Vronsky may be too much the boy-toy. With Jude Law. (130 min., R) (Ty Burr)

Brooklyn Castle The chess team at Intermediate School 318, a public junior high school in Brooklyn, dominates national competitions the way UCLA used to dominate college basketball. The story is a great documentary subject, told well by director Katie Dellamaggiore. The kids and their teachers who populate it are even greater. (102 min., unrated) (Mark Feeney)
