The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office successes "Pride & Prejudice" and "Atonement," is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy's timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard ("Shakespeare in Love").

    The research oetnimned by Alex Tabarrok took faces at random and averaged them. The resulting average face would be more 'symmetric'...many too long noses and many too short noses averaged to give a 'nose that is of just the correct length'(one not disfiguered by autistic stereotypy like yours . Wonder what the end result would be if one takes lots of unattractive (wonder whether that is the politically correct term is face processing is better than saying ugly, I guess) faces and averaged them?
