GORGEOUSLY DEPICTED WITH SLIGHT RE-ORDER TO THE EVENTS AND THEMES

***QUICK CONTRAST TO HARDY'S NOVEL AND THE 1967 CLASSIC INCLUDED AT BOTTOM OF THIS REVIEW

From the dazzlingly rich colors, beautiful countryside, moments of revelry or gripping sadness, not to mention the emotional soundtrack, this adaptation is just stunning in so many ways. The story is reordered from the book in just a few places to save certain revelations till near the end and emphasize romantic situations. The original novel is actually quite short so this is a rare instance where the movie actually has a chance to develop some aspects more than the print. I reread the book and re-watched the 1967 classic at the same time and have left a few impressions at the end of this review. This adaptation emphasizes some themes more for modern audiences while minimizing others. For instance, female strength is emphasized more here while vanity is less prominent (vanity was a very important theme in the original tale). I really liked the fresh take, though some purists have expressed disappointment. My intent is to simply describe and direct according to each individual taste.

THE STORY (no spoilers): Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) arrives to live with her aunt Mrs. Hurst on a farm in Wessex (partially fictionalized region in south west England) and befriends a neighbor Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts) who is renting a sheep farm next to them. He has loans, but improving fortunes that will bring him prosperity and his own land someday. Bathsheba is intelligent and beautiful, but has little fortunes of her own. Though Gabriel declares his interest in marriage, Bathsheba is independent and doesn't wish to be tied down.

This was the second Thomas Hardy book I read as a teenager ("Return of the Native" was the first). Wessex, his fictitious part of England, was as real to me as Sussex or Dorset, and a headstrong woman as the protagonist was right down my alley.

Working from Hardy's novel, screenwriter David Nicholls has provided director Thomas Vinterberg ("The Hunt") with an elegant and accessible interpretation, which, along with cinematography by Charlotte Bruus Christensenan, gives us a luminous film with lovely, lovely scenes.

We watch:
* Carey Mulligan ("The Great Gatsby") as Bathsheba Everdene; she is an intelligent, independent woman who has to choose among three suitors. This lovely actress is capable of gentle subtlety, so Bathsheba is both sincere and irresistible and we want the very best for her.
* Michael Sheen ("Masters of Sex") is William Boldwood, a shy, well-established local businessman who becomes the target of an innocent prank.
* Matthias Schoenaerts ("Lewis and Clark") Sturdy sheepfarmer Gabriel Oak is as steadfast as his name. We see how a playful young sheepdog can visit devastating financial ruin on a farmer.
* Tom Sturridge ("On the Road") plays Sergeant Troy; there's something about a man in uniform....
* Juno Temple ("Maleficent" she was Thistletwit) brings us Fanny Robin, an unfortunate young woman who misunderstands the name of a church.

The movie industry in England has period filmmaking down pat. Whole villages exist for filming so authenticity is never an issue. You can lose yourself in the story and not worry about minutiae. I DID appreciate that the soundtrack matched the sound of hoofbeats, to what we saw on screen.

Thomas Hardy's classic novel "Far from the Madding Crowd" has been beautifully rendered in this 2015 movie. It stars Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene, a proud and independent young woman who insists on running the farm she inherits from an uncle. She will be wooed by three men: Gabriel Oak, a strong and honest shepherd; William Boldwood, a wealthy older man; and Frank Troy, a dashing and dangerous soldier. Her relationship with each man will come to a critical point at a Christmas dance, a well-staged scene that is one of the highlights of the movie.

The storyline of the novel has obviously been compressed, but the movie captures all the essentials of the plot in a wonderfully executed period piece, much of it filmed on location in Dorset. The cinematography may worth the price of admission all by itself, finding all the rich hues in the landscape and in character costumes. The movie also offers many perfectly staged camera shots, such as the ones of Bathsheba riding a horse over the fields. The obvious point of comparison for this movie may not be the novel but its 1967 movie predecessor, which featured an exceptionally strong cast of first rank actors, including Julie Christie as Bathsheba. The 2015 version does not aspire to those heights, but does well in highlighting Bathsheba's courage in choosing to run her own farm, and in her struggle to sort out her feelings about her suitors within the restraints and expectations of 1870's England. The movie is highly recommended to fans of the novel.
