Set in late-19th-century Russia high-society, the aristocrat Anna Karenina enters into a life-changing affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. Most of us know this Tolstoy classic. It will be enjoyable to see a new film adaptation of it. And who better to pull off a classic period blockbuster than Keira Knightly as Anna Karenina. I’m really looking forward to this one.[youtube rPGLRO3fZnQ]
