Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of headstrong Bathsheba Everdene, who inherits a farm and who receives marriage proposals from three very different men. A new version starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, and Matthias Schoenaerts opens this Friday.
The 1967 version starred Julie Christie, Terence Stamp, Peter Finch, and Alan Bates.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWoUBO_nmtI
A silent version came out exactly 100 years ago, in 1915.
