[Trailer] – Anna Karenina

20 Jun

The first trailer for Joe Wright‘s adaptation of Anna Karenina, which will definitely be a major player come Oscar time, is now out, and you can watch it after the cut.

I believe Mr. Wright to be one of the very best filmmakers around nowadays, a man who has a truly amazing way to tell a story, and who provides some of the most visually stunning moments on recent films while also getting remarkable performances out of his cast.

His adaptation of the classic Leo Tolstoy novel looks absolutely brilliant. Like in his best films, Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, this one has a period setting and it stars Keira Knightley, who looks like sheer perfection here. The production design, the costumes, the performances; everything in this film looks stunning.

Directed by Joe Wright; written by Tom Stoppard, based on the Leo Tolstoy novel; starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Domhnall Gleeson and Michelle Dockery. Anna Karenina opens November 9.
