Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina

We have already talked a lot about Anna Karenina here at FemaleFirst because it is a movie that we are really looking forward to.

But we are about to talk about the movie some more because we have some fantastic clips for you to take a look at.

Yes next week sees Keira Knightley return to the big screen as she takes on the title role in the Joe Wright directed movie - which is an adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy novel.

The film reunites Wright with Knightley for the first time since the success of Atonement; this will also mark their third project together.

I know that we are still months and months away from the Oscar but chatter about which film and which actors and actresses will be nominated seems to start earlier every year.

And Anna Karenina is a movie that is already being talked about as a possible contender when the award's season comes around - could Knightley bag another Oscar nomination for her central performance?

But Knightley isn't the only name on the cast list as Jude Law. Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Olivia Williams and Emily Watson are all set to star in what promises to be a visual feast.

wright is known for delivering visually stunning movie - Atonement was the perfect example as he captured the richness of the time as well as the horrors of war - and this movie looks set to do the same.

The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children.

As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.

Anna Karenina is released 7th September
