(2015) Directed by Thomas Vinterberg. Screenplay by David Nicholls, based on the novel by Thomas Hardy. Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, Michael Sheen, Juno Temple.

Jane Austen’s novels, written at the beginning of the 19th century, featured women whose destinies were determined by the success of their marriages. But times change, and some fifty years later, the heroine of Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd announces, ‘It is my intention to astonish you all!’ And although farm owner Bathsheba Everdene, played by Carey Mulligan of Never Let Me Go, is pursued by three very different suitors (a rich farmer, a virile soldier, and a shy sheep herder), she places passion far ahead of eligibility. The glorious rolling fields and ocean views were shot on location in Dorset. 120 min.

“Carey Mulligan…is a live wire in a movie that knows how to stir up a classic for the here and now.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
