I’d imagine that Keira Knightley has to be getting tired of acting in these stuffy historical dramas, but the actress clearly has a passion for them that causes her to squeeze into corset after corset and take audiences to another time and place. Her latest is an adaptation of the classic Tolstoy story Anna Karenina, and thanks to Slashfilm, we’ve got a six minute clip of the film that you can watch below. We see Knightley caught in yet another love triangle, this time with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (when did that “Taylor” sneak its way into the Kick-Ass actor’s name?) and Jude Law, with the tension building as Law confronts her about her loyalty near the end of the clip. Watch it below!
. Anna Karenina opens in limited release on November 9th, 2012. .
Synopsis: The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is a bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness and marriage, change comes to all around her.
