Fresh from its TIFF premiere last weekend, Focus Features has given us a new theatrical trailer as well as five new clips for Joe Wright's Anna Karenina! I think my enthusiasm for this movie has been well documented thus far. I cannot wait for what will surely be the romantic epic of the year. Maybe it’s because I like Aaron Taylor-Johnson, but the more I see of his Vronsky, the more I like him. On the whole this cast is too good to have screwed this up.
The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office 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 (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
The rest of the exceptional cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Michelle Dockery, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, Holliday Grainger, Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson. Anna Karenina is already in theaters for the lucky Brits, but not until November 16 (in limited, awards-qualifying release) for the US. The rest of our coverage is here.
