Critics Praise Far from the Madding Crowd Film Adaptation

by |June 22, 2015

Whenever a new film adaptation of a classic novel is released, you can hear readers’ whispers on the wind.

Please, please please please, let it be good…

But according to critics, Far from the Madding Crowd isn’t good. It’s great.

Starring the incredible Carey Mulligan and directed by Thomas Vinterberg from a screenplay by David Nicholls (yes, that David Nicholls) the latest film adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s seminal novel is perhaps the most impressive.

Great news for readers and filmlovers alike!

by Thomas Hardy

A special edition of Hardy’s brilliant novel to tie in with the major new film starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Matthias Schoenaerts, based on David Nicholls’ screenplay.

Hardy’s powerful novel of swift sexual passion and slow-burning loyalty centres on Bathsheba Everdene, a proud working woman whose life is complicated by three different men – respectable farmer Boldwood, seductive Sergeant Troy and devoted Gabriel – making her the object of scandal and betrayal.

Vividly portraying the superstitions and traditions of a small rural community, Far from the Madding Crowd shows the precarious position of a woman in a man’s world.
