Win an “Anna Karenina” Prize Pack! [Giveaway]

If you’re like me, you didn’t exactly read all the required novels in high school English…it was more like a skimming of the major plot points. Sometimes that skimming was of Cliff’s Notes instead of the proper text itself. Whatever. It happens.

When I first saw the trailer for Anna Karenina — starring Jude Law, Keira Knightely and a lot of really fierce looking fur accessories — I was a little sad I had never technically read the book back in 10th grade. Well, here’s a fun surprise for you! Now YOU have the opportunity to immerse yourself in Leo Tolstoy’s classic tale.

Anna Karenina is acclaimed director Joe Wright’s bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, stirringly adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s great novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love). The film marks the third collaboration of the director with Academy Award-nominated actress Keira Knightley and Academy Award-nominated producers Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Paul Webster, following their award-winning box office successes Pride & Prejudice and Atonement.

Focus Features wants to give you the opportunity to win the following:

-$50 Cash card for a night at the movies with your friends

-A copy of the novel Anna Karenina

-A copy of the Anna Karenina official soundtrack

Atonement and Pride & Prejudice on DVD

Anna Karenina Votivo Candle with Bookmark

  1. Heike says:

    I would take my moM!

  2. Kesha says:

    I would take myself, because I owe it to myself for finishing a book and then seeing the marvel that is my imagination coming alive on screen. Well, that, and I'm trying to accept myself and stuff :P

    If it's really dependent on someone else, then probably my BFF because we'd probably end up comparing details and laughing at the most inappropriate parts.

  3. Kayla says:

    I'd probably take two of my friends, we used to go to the movies together all the time and it'd be nice to do that again.

  4. Rachel says:

    My dream date to Anna Karenina would be my dad! Whenever I come home from college for winter break, my dad and I have a tradition of going to see a movie together. He is a huge lover of books and always encouraged me to read the classics, and I can't wait to see the movie with him when I'm done with finals later this month!

  5. Christel says:

    My husband of course, because he is a hottie and we always have a great time together.

  6. Jeanie Ray says:

    I would take my hubby! Pride and Prejudice is my favorite movie of all time! I love Kiera Knightly and that Matthew MacFadyen is in this makes it even more special!! Ps. I loved Atonement too!!!

  7. Ashley says:

    My dream date would be my mom. Why? Because not only would she appreciate the costumes and hot men, but she's getting her Master's and works full time- she deserves an indulgent night of Jude Law in period costumes.

    The book is a very important part of our friendship since it’s what caused John to be my friend (since he tutored me and helped me get an A on the follow up essay!)
    It’s going to be another great memory for both of us to see Anna Karenina together!
