    Anna Karenina Trailer: Watch Keira Knightley Swoon and Jude Law Frown in Epic Love Story

    Anna Karenina Poster Focus Features

    Bust out the ball gowns!

    Period costume dramas seem to work very well for Keira Knightley: She snagged a Best Actress Oscar nod for 2005's Pride and Prejudice, and her frosty turn in 2007's Atonement helped the film score seven Oscar nominations.

    No shocker, then, that her latest foray, Anna Karenina, finds the actress back in her costumed, corseted element. And if this first glimpse of the film's lush, lusty trailer is any indication, she'll be making a strong bid for some serious kudos this awards season, backed by the flick's formidable literary pedigree.

    "I was 18 when I got married, but it was not love," she says in a voice-over that opens the trailer, setting the stage for a swooning and operatic retelling of Leo Tolstoy's epic 19th-century Russian tragedy.

    Translation? Gorgeous costumes, swelling orchestral cues, lush vistas and a sumptuous cast that includes Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Emily Watson.

    And if that doesn't already scream "Oscar bait," there's always this: The film reunites Knightley with her Atonement director, Joe Wright, and the screenplay is from Oscar-winner Tom Stoppard, who penned Shakespeare in Love.

    Anna Karenina hits theaters on Nov. 9.
