Story


The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes "Pride & Prejudice" and "Atonement," is the epic love story "Anna Karenina," adapted from Leo Tolstoy's classic novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard ("Shakespeare in Love"). 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 (Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the signal achievement of this version of "Anna Karenina" is that it manages to use a world literary classic as the platform for nothing less than the longest Chanel ad ever..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..it's a nervy performance, acutely attuned to the volcanic changes a naive creature must enjoy and endure on her first leap into mad passion..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..is well-placed to gain admiring awards looks, especially in craft categories, but its covert anti-romanticism may limit appeal beyond specialty auds..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
