WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY TOM STOPPARD

Our most esteemed living playwright adapts the most famous love story ever written in the screenplay for the new Focus Features film "Anna Karenina," directed by Joe Wright, starring Keira Knightley and Jude Law.

Tolstoy's brilliant novel, tracing the tragic love affair between Count Vronsky and the unhappily married Anna, has moved readers for generations. Now, award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard re-imagines what Vladimir Nabokov called "one of the greatest love stories in world literature" for the screen.

The result is beautiful, stirring, and at once old and new. A special introduction by Stoppard offers a glimpse into the process behind his remarkable interpretation.
