Focus Features has released eight posters for Joe Wright‘s Anna Karenina. Each poster highlights a different kind of love featured in the movie, although some of them are a bit redundant like the “forbidden love” and “scandalous love” between Anna (Keira Knightley) and Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) or the “pure love” and “romantic love” between Levin (Domhnall Gleeson) and Kitty (Alicia Vikander). Adjectives aside, Anna Karenina is a big, bold romance film, and while I wasn’t completely taken with it, I talked to plenty of people at TIFF who were.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The film also stars Jude Law, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, and Olivia Williams. Anna Karenina opens November 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Anna Karenina:
The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following the award-winning boxoffice successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is the epic love story “Anna Karenina,” adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.
