About Anna Karenina
Keira Knightley has the best job ever: prancing around in beautiful costumes with the delightful Aaron Johnson. Previous roles for Knightley have included prancing around in beautiful costumes with James McAvoy, Dominic Cooper, Michael Fassbender and Johnny Depp. She didn't even have the discomfort of working on location as this visually impressive literary adaptation was mostly shot using lavish theatrical sets! She plays Anna, a Russian princess who is married to the wealthy Alexei Karenin (Jude Law). But when she meets the dashing young Count Vronsky (Johnson), the pair are instantly attracted to each other and start a life-changing affair. Despite being a woman of high society, Anna's feelings for Vronsky often overwhelm her and it's not long before her husband suspects that something is wrong.
