Obsession has never looked so good! Keira Knightley stars as a love-obsessed Russian aristocrat in this dark romance that takes on passion, lust and love.
Just when you stopped crying from Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, Keira Knightley has you reaching for the tissues again. The beautiful Brit takes on the role of the troubled but passionate Anna in Anna Karenina. Get ready for hot men, sexy love scenes and to-die-for ball gowns.
Here are the top five reasons to rush to theaters to see Anna Karenina:
1) Keira Knightley, period
She is absolutely stunning as Anna. Keira, 27, takes the passions of infidelity, lust and obsession to a whole new level. Her slightly crazed character is beautiful and passionate as she falls madly in love with Count Vronsky. Bottom line: There’s no question this is one amazing actress.
2) Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s lovely blonde locks.
You may just find yourself falling for Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) just as hard as Anna when you watch this movie. His charming smile and good boy golden locks almost overshadow his playboy nature…almost.
3) The gorgeous costumes.
Never before has winter wear looked so good! From fur-trimmed capes to crimson red ball gowns that sparkle in the Russian snow, to strands upon strands of pearls, 19th century Russia is gorgeous. The costumes in Anna Karenina are absolutely magical. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wishing for snow!
4) It’s way hot!
Did someone turn up the heat in Russia? Anna and Count Vronsky’s affair is so hot, I swear the snow in Russia must be melting. Their passion is so physical, and at times borders on obsessive, that it’s hard not to fall under the love spell that Anna and Vronsky cast!
5) Jude Law’s big heart.
Ok, so maybe Anna has an affair and cheats on her husband Alexei Karenin (Jude Law), but through it all he keeps his composure and plays the nice guy card to the extreme. Some may call it being a pushover, but I call it pure class, and Jude surely delivers.
I can assure you this is not the Anna Karenina you remember from high school, HollywoodLifers! The film opens nationwide Nov. 16. Be sure to see Anna Karenina as soon as you can!
