Far From the Madding Crowd comes to Blu-ray and DVD on August 4th. I have actually never heard of the movie or the book before, but after reading the movie synopsis (included below), I can’t wait to check it out!
Carey Mulligan stars as a headstrong Victorian beauty in this sweeping romantic drama, based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy. Mulligan plays Bathsheba Everdene, an independent woman who attracts three different suitors: a sheep farmer (Matthias Schoenaerts); a dashing soldier (Tom Sturridge); and a prosperous, older bachelor (Michael Sheen). This timeless story of Bathsheba’s passions explores the nature of relationships, love and resilience.
Far From the Madding Crowd looks like a great date night or chick flick movie! I can’t wait to watch it myself!
