REVIEW: ANNA KARENINA
From Golden Globe Award®-nominated director Joe Wright
(Atonement) comes a thrilling new vision of the epic story of love, Anna Karenina, adapted by Academy Award®-
winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love) from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless classic novel. Academy
Award® nominee Keira Knightley (Pride & Prejudice), Academy Award® nominee Jude Law (Cold Mountain),
and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Savages) lead an all-star cast in a story powerfully exploring the capacity for love that
surges through the human heart, while illuminating the lavish society that was imperial Russia. Anna Karenina has
been hailed as “extraordinarily bold and exciting!” (Vogue). Anna Karenina will be available on Blu-ray™ Combo
Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on February 19, 2013 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
At the twilight of an empire, Anna Karenina (Knightley), the beautiful wife of one of Russia’s most esteemed men
(Law), has it all. But when she meets the dashing cavalry officer Vronsky (Taylor-Johnson), there is a mutual spark
of instant attraction that cannot be ignored. Anna is swept up in a passionate affair that will shock a nation and
change the lives of everyone around her. The visually enchanting Anna Karenina is “ecstatic” (Time),
“rapturous” (MSN Movies) and “a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed!” (The Huffington Post) This “instant
Oscar contender” (Pete Hammond, Deadline) is a must-have addition to any DVD collection, with Bonus Features
detailing the stunning artistry of the cast and crew.
