Based on the classic novel that I never readed by Leo Tolstroy: in late 19th century Russia, an aristocratic young women enters into an affair with a count, a move that brings her great passion but just as much scandal. This movie has good make-up and good acting but the movie feels a see it before movie.

Stunning! I might have preferred a more conventional period piece similar to Wright's other works (Atonement, P&P) that used actual shooting locations, but the aesthetic choices made for this film are incredible. The production design, costume design, and cinematography are absolutely gorgeous and really make the film one of the most beautiful you'll ever see. The performances are all solid and Knightley gives one of her best and most mature performances to date. The film is a bit emotionally cold at times due to the horrendous casting of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Count Vronsky, but overall Anna Karenina is a good period piece.
