Thanks to Fox Searchlight here’s the first official trailer of Far From The Madding Crowd, the upcoming drama movie directed by Thomas Vinterberg and starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Tom Sturridge:
FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
“The story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love — as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.”
What an amazing trailer! I guess the song accounts for much in me loving it though… It’s a version of the traditional folk song “Let No Man Steal Your Thyme”. The song is beautifully performed by Carey Mulligan herself (backed up by co-star Michael Sheen) .
Anyway here’s the film poster:
Based on the classic love story by Thomas Hardy.
Directed by Thomas Vinterberg.
The film will open in theaters on May 1, 2015.
