About Far From the Madding Crowd
Far From the Madding Crowd is a classic book written by Thomas Hardy, and this movie is a remake of a 1967 remake.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
“Independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. The first of his works set in Wessex, Hardy’s novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships.”
The 2015 version stars Carey Mulligan (from Pride and Prejudice and The Great Gatsby), and I think the trailer below gives a glimpse into her incredible action chops.
GAH, the romance you guys!
