Glitzy six-minute clip from Anna Karenina: watch now

Anna Karenina has released a new clip online, in which director Joe Wright introduces the audience to some of the filming techniques used to capture the cavernous and dilapidated theatre where much of the film was shot.

As Wright explains, the shoot took place amid more than 100 interconnected sets, allowing cameras to move from one room to the next between entirely different settings, creating a greater sense of fluidity.

As for the clip itself, it’s suitably spectacular, as Keira Knightley’s Anna attends an extremely lavish society occasion, attended also by Aaron Johnson’s Vronsky and Jude Law’s Karenin.
