Trapped in a loveless marriage to Alexei (Jude Law), aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley) falls for the dashing Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson). But this is late 19th century Russian high society, where such scandalous affairs rarely go unpunished. The price of her passion proves very high indeed as she is shunned by her peers and even threatened with separation from her son. Frequently described as the greatest novel of all time, Leo Tolstoy's romantic tragedy centres on one of literature's great heroines. This sumptuously staged new screen version is scripted by Tom Stoppard, who won an Oscar for 'Shakespeare in Love'. It also reunites Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright after their acclaimed collaborations 'Pride & Prejudice' and 'Atonement'. The outstanding supporting cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Emily Watson and Olivia Williams
