There are few major films left to come out this year that haven’t yet had any kind of major piece of marketing. Today one of those films fixes that issue as we have our first trailer for Joe Wright‘s Anna Karenina starring Keira Knightley (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) in the titular role as Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel is brought to life once again.

The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.

Along with Knightley the film co-stars Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew MacFadyen, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams and Ruth Wilson and is set to hit theaters on November 9.
