    Anna Karenina

    Director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) takes on Tolstoy's classic epic about love, honor, and betrayal in 19th-century Russia. CliffsNotes plot: The young, beautiful, aristocratic Anna Karenina, who is married to a government official, falls madly in love with the charming Count Vronsky. Long story short: Torrid affair, huge scandal, tragedy. The buzz: A combination of stunning cinematography, Tom Stoppard's script, unbelievable costumes, and an Oscar-caliber performance by Keira Knightley, who, shockingly, has never been cast as the lead in one of the 12 previous adaptations.
