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. 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.
