Far From the Madding Crows--the film

Rian, my grand daughter, and I went to the Copper Onion for lunch today--it never disappoints--and then went to the Broadway and saw FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, taken from the Thomas Hardy novel of the same name.

It was such a satisfying film.  Carrie Mulligan was a perfect Bathsheba and Belgian actor, Matthia Schoenaerts was smashing as the sheepherder, Gabriel.  Gosh, imagine Americans fans getting their lips around that name.

And who can ever get enough of English countryside? Certainly, not me.

Searching online,  I found that FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD was made with Julie Christie in America (long ago when I was young), in German, and another English version for Masterpiece Theater.  My cup runneth over. And so does yours, unless you need a scene with a car chase; then never mind.
