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.
