The film is the third partnership of Knightley and director Joe Wright, who previously helmed the actress in Atonement and Pride & Prejudice.
In taking on Tolstoy’s book, Wright tells the story of Knightley’s Karenina, a late-19th-century Russian aristocrat married to one of Russia’s most esteemed men (Jude Law, Sherlock Holmes). Karenina feels an immediate spark when she meets cavalry officer Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Savages) and the two begin a passionate affair that shocks the nation.
Written by acclaimed screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love), Anna Karenina got mixed reviews when it was in theaters, where it ran on a limited number of screens. The R-rated period film, which also stars Kelly Macdonald (The Decoy Bride) and Matthew Macfadyen (The Three Musketeers), grossed $11 million.
Critics did agree, however, that the movie was lush and picturesque, so it should look gorgeous on high-definition Blu-ray.
