Anna Karenina - Trailer
Director Joe WrightYear 2012Genre(s) Alternative
Anna Karenina is the young wife of senior statesman Alexei Karenin. Theirs was more of a marriage of convenience rather than love and soon Anna's eyes begin to wander elsewhere as her desire for romance becomes ever more intense. She meets Count Vronsky, a handsome cavalry officer with whom she enters into a passionate adulterous affair. When people find out about their involvement, Anna's honour is crushed in the eyes of the Russian noble men and women and she is forced to make a choice; to leave her loveless marriage and family and lose all honour and dignity, or end her affair with her possessive lover and be potentially forgiven.
This period drama is a remarkable adaptation from the illustrious Russian author Leo Tolstoy's novel. Directed by costume drama aficionado Joe Wright ('Atonement', 'Pride and Prejudice' and TV mini-series 'Charles II: The Power and the Passion') and adapted by Academy Award winner Sir Tom Stoppard, this tragic tale of honour and passion is the pinnacle of Tolstoy's work and one of the most significant love stories ever written. The talented all-star cast inject the film with such fervour, invoking heart-break and agony among viewers and doing the much-loved story justice. It will be released on the 7th September in UK cinemas everywhere.
