I’m kiiind of into the whole Russian culture thing. I minored in Russian in college, have a tattoo with Russian text and my bookshelf is primarily filled with Russian authors. So I’m sure you’re shocked to hear that Anna Karenina is one of my favorite novels, and I’ve been eagerly anticipating the movie adaptation that’s coming out later this year. Its first full trailer has just been released, and you can watch it here! I may be biased, but it’s definitely worth a view, even if you’re not familiar with the story. Just sit back and enjoy gorgeous shots of pretty people and grand sets.
I have to make the obligatory comment that you should go read the novel before seeing this, but I know you’re probably like me and prefer lighter summer book fare. There isn’t a release date for the film yet, but I will definitely be in attendance at one of the first screenings! [via Slate]
Will you see this movie? Have you read Anna Karenina?
