Synopsis

Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley) causes a public scandal when she has an affair with Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), being given the difficult choice by her husband (Jude Law) of exiling with Vronsky but never seeing her son again, or staying with her family and abiding by strict rules. Meanwhile, a farmer named Levin (Domhnall Gleeson) yearns for Princess Kitty (Alicia Vikander), who is hopelessly in love with Vronsky.
