Anna Karenina

Being of Russian heritage, I’ve always been fascinated by everything about that country, from its rich history to its gorgeous architecture and delicious food. Vodka, caviar, the Romanovs, Dr. Zhivago—there is so much to be captivated by. In high school, I took a Russian Literature course where I first read one of my favorite books for the first time, Anna Karenina. When I heard they were turning the Tolstoy classic into a film with Keira Knightley and Jude Law, I was first in line. I was blown away by the cinematography, the exquisite costumes, and the stunning sets.  Inspired by the gorgeous film, here are a few picks to get into the spirit of Anna Karenina.
