    When the beautiful young aristocrat Anna Karenina (Claire Bloom) meets the dashing Count Vronsky (Sean Connery) at a Moscow railway station, their first encounter is overshadowed by misfortune.

    Trapped in a loveless, arranged marriage with the cold Alexei Karenina, Anna tries her best to resist the passionate advances of Vronsky. Eventually succumbing to his allure, Anna grows to be his mistress.

    Her actions cause outrage in St Petersburg society and her husband not only refuses her the dignity of a divorce but also prevents her from seeing her beloved son - unless she agrees to leave Vronsky forever.

    Shunned, heartbroken and trapped by the very love she'd always sought, Anna's actions become ever more desperate.
