Keira Knightley looks like she might steal this show as Anna Karenina in the big-screen adaptation on Leo Tolstor’s classic.
The first poster gives the impression of lavish luxury in ballrooms and snow and features Keira Knightly, Aaron Johnson, Jude Law, Alicia Vikander and Domhnall Gleeson.
“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.”
Also appearing along side the main cast are Matthew Macfadyen, Emily Watson and Olivia Williams supporting. Take a look at the trailer and beautiful poster below.
Anna Karenina will be in cinemas in the UK on 7th September and in the US on a limited release from 9th November.
