Synopsis

Independent, beautiful and headstrong country heiress Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) has three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor.

Bathsheba considers herself to be intellectually superior to all three, but when she finally drops her haughty attitude, she's able to be open to a man's love.

Based on the beloved novel by Thomas Hardy.

  • 5 stars "Both actors are great! It's definitely one of the best movie this year."
  • 5 stars "A very pleasant way to spend the afternoon. The script was a little predictable but well acted"
  • 1 star "Thomas Hardy novel very badly adapted to the screen. Carey Mulligan did not grasp the passion of the character at all. I kept waiting for this slow slow moving film to get going."
