Anna Karenina (Blu-ray + Digital Copy + UV Copy) Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Anna Karenina is acclaimed director Joe Wright's bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, stirringly adapted from Leo Tolstoy's great novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love). The film marks the third collaboration of the director with Academy Award-nominated actress Keira Knightley and Academy Award-nominated producers Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Paul Webster, following their award-winning box office successes Pride and Prejudice and Atonement. The timeless story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the... human heart, while illuminating the lavish society that was imperial Russia. The time is 1874. Vibrant and beautiful, Anna Karenina (Ms. Knightley) has what any of her contemporaries would aspire to; she is the wife of Karenin (Jude Law), a high-ranking government official to whom she has borne a son, and her social standing in St. Petersburg could scarcely be higher. She journeys to Moscow after a letter from her philandering brother Oblonsky (Matthew Macfadyen) arrives, asking for Anna to come and help save his marriage to Dolly (Kelly Macdonald). En route, Anna makes the acquaintance of Countess Vronsky (Olivia Williams), who is then met at the train station by her son, the dashing cavalry officer Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). When Anna is introduced to Vronsky, there is a mutual spark of instant attraction that cannot - and will not - be ignored. [show more]

HANNA director Joe Wright shifts gears from action to classical literature by teaming with Oscar-winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard for this adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's beloved novel. Set in late 19th Century Russia, ANNA KARENINA follows the tale of a young debutante (Keira Knightly) who questions her happiness, and begins to see her life transform in ways she never thought possible. Jude Law, Matthew MacFadyen, and Olivia Williams co-star in a film scored by Academy Award-winning composer Dario Marianelli (ATONEMENT).

Tom Stoppard pens this Academy Award-nominated adaptation of Tolstoy's classic story of doomed love, directed by Joe Wright and boasting a star-studded British cast headed by Kiera Knightley and Jude Law. Trapped in a loveless marriage and the ongoing fallout of a family crisis, Anna (Knightley) falls uncontrollably in love with charming and affluent bachelor Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson). But as Anna falters to make a decision about leaving her husband, government official Karenin (Law), Vronsky continues to pursue his social life, leading Anna into a growing paranoia about his infidelities that eventually leads to tragic consequences.
