Anna Karenina (2012)
Synopsis: Anna Karenina (Keira Knightley), the wife of a Russian imperial minister (Jude Law), creates a high-society scandal by an affair with Count Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a dashing cavalry officer in 19th-century St. Petersburg. Anna's husband, Alexei, offers her a difficult choice: Go into exile with Vronsky but never see her young son again, or remain with her family and abide by the rules of discretion. Meanwhile, a farmer named Levin pines for Princess Kitty, who only has eyes for Vronsky.

LEVIN:

by Berkut!

AGAFIA:

So one of you is doing what the good Lord

made you for.

Levin evades, ducks into spooning up soup, finding his place in his book.

Agafia goes out. Alone, Levin closes the book and stares into himself.
