In late-19th-century Russian high society, St. Petersburg aristocrat Anna Karenina enters into a life-changing affair with the dashing Count Alexei Vronsky.
Joe Wright briefly considered having the actors use Russian accents but later decided against it, fearing it would be hard for him to assess their performances.
The man who can't govern his wife, has gone as far as he can go in government.
Throughout the film every time Anna's son's name is spoken, it is uniformly mispronounced in four syllables using some wrong phonemes, whereas in Russian his name has three syllables.
Count Vronsky is misspelled as "Vronksy" in the end credits.
