The acclaimed director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Hanna), has teamed up once again with screen siren Keira Knightley for the film adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s 1878 novel Anna Karenina.
The film also stars Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Ruth Wilson, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Olivia Williams, and Emily Watson. The screenplay is written by Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love).
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 story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.
