Leo Tolstoy’s classic story of doomed love, Anna Karenina, is now a major motion picture starring Keira Knightly, Jude Law, and Aaron Johnson. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) from a script by Tom Stoppard, the film brilliantly brings to life one of the most admired novels in world literature. Early reviews have been glowing, with Time magazine calling it an “intelligently ecstatic new adaptation.”
