Film critics are unanimous in their overwhelming praise of this movie brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg. Vogue Magazine calls this film “The Season's Most Romantic Movie. ”
This enthralling adaptation from the 1874 Thomas Hardy literary classic is the story of an independent beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene, portrayed by actress Carey Mulligan, who attracts three suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor.
This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love — as well as the ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is coupled with gorgeous cinematography and a beautiful musical score; it's rated PG-13.
