About the film:
Carey Mulligan leads the cast of this sumptuous new take on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel. Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) is an independent, headstrong young woman keen to make her own way in the male-dominated environment of late 19th century Dorset. Having inherited her uncle’s farm, Bathsheba gains a measure of social status, only to find herself being courted by three very different men. Sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a man of relatively lowly social status but possessed of strong moral fibre. Repressed landowner Boldwood (Michael Sheen) is wealthy and can promise Bathsheba lasting financial security. And soldier Sergeant Troy (Tom Sturridge) is dashingly charismatic. Can she find lasting happiness with any of them? Directed by Thomas Vinterburg, a leading figure of the Danish ‘Dogme’ realist movement, this is a visually rich, emotional take on Thomas Hardy’s beloved novel, with Oscar nominee Mulligan excelling in the role of the forward-thinking Bathsheba.
We Look forward to seeing you all on this Friday.
