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").

As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
