Keira KnightlyThanks to the support of Focus Features, we are thrilled to announce our latest Get Caught Reading supporter, Keira Knightley! An Academy Award nominated actress and model best known for her roles in such films as Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, and The Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Keira was caught here reading the book of her latest film adaptation, Anna Karenina. "I've always loved history — reading about it, playing it out on-screen — because I feel it takes me out of the present; I fall into a fantasy, which I love doing," she says. Anna Karenina is her third book-to-film collaboration with director Joe Wright, once again bringing to the screen a literary masterpiece from the past.
