Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina Brief Information

Anna Karenina is a 2012 British epic romantic drama film directed by Joe Wright and adapted by Tom Stoppard from Leo Tolstoy's 1877 novel of the same name. The film depicts the tragedy of married Russian aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. Keira Knightley stars in the lead role as Karenina, marking her third collaboration with Wright following Pride & Prejudice (2005) and Atonement (2007), while Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson appear as Alexei Karenin and Vronsky, respectively.

Produced by Working Title Films in association with StudioCanal, the film premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. It was released on 7 September 2012 in the United Kingdom and Ireland and on 9 November 2012 in the United States. Anna Karenina earned a worldwide gross of approximately $56 million, mostly from its international run, which was considered a mediocre but decent commercial specialty success. It earned a rating of 63 percent from review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, labelling it generally favorable. Critics praised the cast and commented on and criticized the heavily stylised adaptation, but were less enthusiastic with Wright's preference for style over substance and his idea of setting most of the action on a theatre stage.
