The latest version of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel Anna Karenina is coming to “select” US theaters on November 16, 2012. I am very excited about this movie! Directed by the brilliant Joe Wright, the movie stars Keira Knightley as Anna and the wonderful, oh-so-handsome Matthew Macfadyen as Anna’s brother Stepan “Stiva” Arkadyevitch Oblonsky. Sort of strange to think of Matthew playing Keira’s brother after being her romantic interest in Pride & Prejudice! Nevertheless, this promises to be an epic movie.
Other stars include Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kelly MacDonald, Emily Watson, and many other fine British actors. Places to learn more about the movie and see images–

The reviews so far all look to be very positive. A Google search will bring them up, but here is one list of links: IMDB Anna Karenina reviews How faithful it is to the novel is a big question. I haven’t read the novel so doubt that aspect with bother me! If the movie is as lush and epic as it appears to be from the trailers, I will be happy. Plus, I get to stare at Matthew again. That always is a perk. :All-I-See-is-Love:
