Knightley was thrilled to be working with Jude Law. "I've known Jude socially for quite a few years and actually we were meant to do a film called Tulip Fever that was based on a Tom Stoppard script. It fell through, and I ended up doing Pride and Prejudice. So it felt really wonderful that we'd finally got to work together after so many years on a Tom Stoppard script. It all felt like it had gone kind of full circle."
