It's one of the most hotly anticipated films of this year and now you can take a first look at the trailer for Joe Wright’s adaptation of Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley.

The movie version of Tolstoy’s epic masterpiece is released this September and sees Keira take the lead role alongside an impressive role call of co-stars including Jude Law, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Olivia Williams, Michelle Dockery and Emily Watson.

"It was definitely the hardest thing I've ever done," Keira recently commented about the film. "Obviously, Tolstoy was a genius and I think the reason that his books last so well is because they are so complex, and it's really looking at the best of humanity and the worst of humanity, often in one character.

"And trying to balance all those things in the one person was really hard. Hopefully it's worked."

Get a first taste for what promises to be a beautiful interpretation of the classic tale of love in 19th century Russia in the trailer, below, and let us know your thoughts on Twitter @StylistMagazine or in the comments section.
