Movie Monday (Anna Karenina)

Monday, July 16, 2012

Every Monday I try to bring you some awesome news about the upcoming movies of your favorite novels, as well as, reviews of movies that have released from books that you've read.

Today, I am fangirling at the notion of Keira Knightley being in another classic.  Anna Karenina is a classic that I have not read yet but it sounds like I should.  It sounds like I would enjoy a historical novel about a love affair and it's the first in a series.  

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy  

Publisher: Signet Classics
Publication Date: 1877
Pages: 940
Buy It: Barnes & Noble | Amazon
The sensual, rebellious Anna renounces a respectable yet stifling marriage for an affair that offers passion even as it ensnares her for destruction. Her story contrasts with that of Levin, a young, self- doubting agnostic who takes a different path to fulfillment. --Goodreads
Okay, maybe I am not reading this any time soon, due to the length but it sounds good.  Anna Karenina is no stranger to film and it will be interesting to see what this year's release (November 9) brings.

It does look very promising because it has both Keira Knightley and Jude Law on board.  Keira Knightley is an actress that I love to watch for, if she is in a movie than I might just watch that movie because she is going to make it.  Pride and Prejudice's Elizabeth Bennett was the role Knightley was made for, or rather the period she was made for.  She looks great in those dresses and works best with romance.  I think she will shine in this one.  Plus, Jude Law brought it in the Sherlock Holmes movies.  I can't wait until the movie comes out!  Check out the trailer:

So what do you think about another remake?  Will you go see this when it releases in November?
