it's watchable, really like the cast, but the story is meh. the choices she makes are frustrating to watch just like the ones from the other famous Miss Everdeen. but the movie is well made so I'll give it 7/10

If this is what it's actually like to be "not like other girls" and have men fall at your feet, I'm thankful no one loves me lmaooo [spoiler]Also, I was wondering how we were gonna get rid of that devil soldier. Rolled my eyes when he lived.[/spoiler] [spoiler]Also also, it took me until the last 10 minutes to actually like this movie and understand the point. One was a man who wanted to control her, one was a man willing to be subservient to her (bro, my heart kinda broke for Boldwood tho), but the one meant for her was her true equal. What a fantastic conclusion! Too bad the other 1.5 hours were boring af[/spoiler]

Based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel, Far From the Madding Crowd is a compelling tale of romance and perseverance. The story follows a young woman named Bathsheba Everdene who inherits her father’s farm and soon attracts a number of suitors, including a wealthy businessman and a military officer, who are drawn to her fierce independence. Carey Mulligan gives a strong performance, as does her co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, and they both have good chemistry together. Additionally, the sets and costume are incredible well-done; feeling authentic to the time period. However, the plot’s rather formulaic and predictable. Yet while it’s a tad familiar, Far From the Maddening Crowd is a captivating film.

I found the first half of the movie hard to get through, and my wife actually gave up and went to sleep by the time 40 minutes had passed. I agree that the characters need more depth, and also that there needed to be a clearer time frame.

I felt that lots superfluous day to day activity was incl More

**Three men like the three different seasons in a woman's life!**

This is a wonderful drama, I have been waiting for such film to come and since its release, I have been looking forward to this day. The romance is the theme of the film, so not the entire film as what it looks like. Based on the o More

This is a very classy adaptation of the Thomas Hardy story and Carey Mulligan plays the role of "Bathsheba Everdene" will some skill. It is one of those stories, however, where I never quite understood why the heroine just didn't stick to her plan A and marry the right boy first. In this case, the h More
