Synopsis for the novel from Wikipedia:
Anna Karenina is the tragedy of married aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother’s unbridled womanizing—something that prefigures her own later situation, though with less tolerance for her by others.
It’s a big story of love, loyalty, passion, infidelity, paranoia, and whatnot, all set against the backdrop of an opulent, bygone high society.
With Keira Knightley starring also Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson and Holliday Grainger.
Anna Karenina will reach theaters in the UK on September 7th and in the US November 9th, 2012.
