FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
“Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, the film is 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.”
I say the girl should start her own sect and make polyandry one of its tenet. Then she could marry her three suitors!
The film is starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Tom Sturridge.
