Anna Karenina seems to have everything - beauty, wealth, popularity, and an adored son.

But she feels that her life is empty until the moment she encounters the impetuous officer Count Vronsky. Their subsequent affair scandalizes society and family alike, and soon brings jealousy and bitterness in its wake.

Contrasting with this tale of love and self-destruction is the vividly observed story of Levin, a man striving to find contentment and a meaning to his life – and also a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself.

This epic story of love, is now a major motion picture, from Joe Wright the director of 'Atonement' and 'Pride and Prejudice'  with a screenplay by Tom Stoppard.
