Keira Knightley: I love Joe Wright's unconventional directing

Keira Knightley loves working for Joe Wright because his directing style is always ''out of the norm''.
The 27-year-old actress has been directed by the filmmaker in a number of movies including 'Atonement' and 'Anna Karenina', and she enjoyed how he managed to create a ''grubby'' version of 2005 period drama 'Pride and Prejudice', an adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 novel of the same name.
She said: ''I think it's his imagination. You know, I think it's totally sensational. Every film that we've done, you can put them into the category of period film but they're really extraordinary pieces on their own.
'''Pride and Prejudice' wasn't the kind of generic kind of period film. He really had a vision of it that made it much more realistic and sort of grubby. They were quite scruffy and much younger and I think he really kind of had a vision of that story that hadn't been done before.
''With 'Atonement' that one shot that is the whole Dunkirk scene was something that was purely from his imagination. And then you get to 'Anna Karenina' and that is certainly part of his imagination and his kind of worlds he created. Because of that, I find him incredibly exciting.
''You never know where he's gonna go. You know it's going to be something out of the norm. It's going to be something that pushes boundaries in some way and I find that incredibly exciting.''
The brunette beauty also loves the ''amazing'' meticulous approach Joe takes when he is directing a movie.
She added to ''He is obsessed by the work that he does. He gives 150 per cent of himself to it and he expects that from people he collaborates with. And you give it because you want to because it's so intoxicating.
''The opportunity - it feels like a great privilege to be able to dive into this world of make believe and pay attention to every single detail of it is an amazing thing. So I think that's why I like to work with him.''
