In Imperial Russia 1874, socialite Anna Karenina (Knightley), seemingly content in a passionless marriage to dependable government official Karenin (Law), falls for dashing cavalry officer Count Vronsky (Taylor-Johnson) and starts an affair that turns her world and polite Russian society upside down.
If it doesn’t ultimately engage your heart as it might, Anna Karenina is period drama at its most exciting, intoxicating and modern. Spellbinding.
