New film of Anna Karenina shot in London

The new film of Anna Karenina, which gets its UK premiere in Leicester Square, was shot largely in and around London.

It is based on a Russian novel of epic proportions, written by Leo Tolstoy and set towards the beginning of the Russian revolution.

Our reporter Liz Wickham has been talking to Keira Knightley and Jude Law, who star as Anna and her husband.
