Anna Karenina, Focus Features' adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy novel, stars Keira Knightley and Jude Law as Anna and Alexei. The poster and trailer for the film have debuted, displaying the opulence of high-society Russia captured in the film. Have a look:
Lavish period adaptations seem to be all the rage right now, with Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby trailer dropping recently. Both films come from some of the most celebrated pieces of literature in the last 200 years, and both explore the idea of wealth as a means to happiness.
Director Joe Wright, best known for Pride and Prejudice and Atonement (both also starring Knightley), is certainly no stranger to period dramas and adaptations. The film will also star Alicia Vikander, Aaron Johnson, and Kelly MacDonald (Brave).
Anna Karenina is slated for release November 9.
