This article argues that the application of theatrical style contributes to the representation of crime romance and emphasizes female perspectives in film narratives. Using Chicago and Anna Karenina as examples, I will show that drama can better convey the storylines of crime romance. The dramatic designs of backstage and stage successfully integrate these two films with literature and art. Along with using literary plots and oil paintings, Chicago and Anna Karenina also pay homage to classic works, which uses dramatic expressions to rationalize the struggles of women.
