Far from the Madding Crowd

Drama


 

Bathsheba Everdene is an independent women, who inherits a farm and spends her days between her work and fending off potential suitors.

"Far from the Madding Crowd" is a literary adaptation and period piece, traditional in its story-telling and romance. The landscape has never looked so radiant, and the diligent and strongly developed characters are a breath of fresh country air. A variety of personalities are at play, the knowing glances and careful courtship a delight to watch. Farm life might not suit everyone, but this film is far from disappointing.
