This trailer knows exactly what it’s doing, and it does it quite well. I’m now convinced that Joe Wright‘s Anna Karenina will be, at least in part, an early ’70s Ken Russell film, and that’s a very high compliment. Keira Knightley as Anna, Aaron Johnson as Count Vronsky and Jude Law (who always scores in character parts) as Alexei Karenin. Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald and Olivia Williams costar. Screen adaptation of Leo Tolstoy‘s novel by Tom Stoppard.

The cinematography is by Seamus McGarvey, and the original score is by Dario Marianelli.
