Win! BBC adaptation of Anna Karenina on DVD
Nicola Pagett (A Woman of Substance), stars as Anna Karenina alongside Eric Porter (The Forsyte Saga) in this classic BBC adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's epic tale of passion set in late 19th century Russia.
Anna is young, vivacious, beautiful and resigned to a loveless marriage of convenience to a man 20 years her senior. She moves in the highest circles of Czarist Russia and believes herself to be invulnerable to temptation.
But her life changes dramatically when she meets Count Vronksy who awakens her dormant passion and changes her life with ultimately tragic consequences.
This powerful and compelling TV dramatisation from 1978 returns to DVD, freshly re-packaged with glorious performances that more than do justice to the acclaimed novel. It’s available from 16 July from DVD outlets and www.acorndvd.com, priced £25.99, but we have 10 copies to be won.
