Keira Knightley and Aaron Johnson in new photos from Anna Karenina
This fall/winter audiences will be seeing a lot of period dramas and one to look out for is Joe Wright’s ANNA KARENINA starring Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson and Jude Law. Based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy, ANNA KARENINA follows the love story of a woman in the upper class of Russian society who falls in love with an Army officer. We’ve seen quite a few photos and clips from the film but there will still be much to see when ANNA KARENINA is released in theaters. This is a great film to showcase Keira Knightley’s acting abilities, but what really stands out to this writer is the fact that Joe Wright shot almost this entire film on one sound stage in a building with interlocking sets. I’m not much of a Joe Wright fan, but I am excited to see his take on this classic novel.
ANNA KARENINA stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Emily Watson, Matthew Macfadyen, Olivia Williams and Ruth Wilson. Directed by Joe Wright, the film will open in theaters on November 9th, 2012. (Kinopoisk)
