Back together again, Keira Knightley and director Joe Wright, after successes with Pride & Prejudice and Atonement, bring us the epic love story of Anna Karenina, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s novel by Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love). Anna Karenina is a big period film with grand sets, great costumes, and Wright’s incredible energy, all taking place in 19th century Russia. I’m in!
Official Synopsis: The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
