Far From the Madding Crowd

Out in cinemas in the UK at the moment is the latest film adaptation of Thomas Harry's Far From the Madding Crowd.

I went to see the film last night and loved it.

The star is Carey Mulligan, who plays the role of Bathsheba Everdene beautifully.

The photography of the film reminds of Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightley version).  It is soft and sweeping with gorgeous landscapes.  The musical score is also perfect.

And who could resist Gabriel Oak played by Matthias Schoenaerts.

I would strongly recommend  Far From the Madding Crowd (or as our cinema advertised it, Far From the Maddening Crowd) to anyone who loves a good period drama. Go see it and enjoy.


  1. Oh, me and my husband are going to see it tomorrow, so nice to hear it is going to be enjoyable. My oldest is callled Gabriel because of Mr Oak.

  2. I haven't been to the cinema for a long time, we seem to wait for the DVD release if it is something we really do want to watch.

  3. Wonderful movie. I enjoyed it so much I'm thinking about seeing it again!
