"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." This famous line commences a refreshingly modern interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina--an epic tale of love, duty, marriage and infidelity.

This richly detailed film charts the tragic romantic triangle formed when the dashing Count Vronsky defies social conventions and falls into forbidden love with Anna, the ignored wife of an aristocrat. Soon, Anna's children - a son by Karenin and illegitimate daughter by Vronsky - become pawns in Karenin's game to see that Anna pays a terrible price for her indiscretion.

With its gripping narrative and unbridled romance, Anna Karenina reveals the uncontrollable passion, emotional betrayal and courage of a woman who violates moral strictures and risks everything to follow her heart.

Helen McCrory stars as Anna, along with Kevin McKidd (Trainspotting) as Count Vronsky, the handsome object of her desires; and Tony Award-winner Stephen Dillane (The Real Thing) as Alexei Karenin, Anna's callously principled husband.

Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators, link to the Masterpiece Theatre Web site; scene selections; closed captions; and described video for the visually impaired.
