FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (2015) movie review

There are no crowds in this story. The whole tale takes place far from the so-called “madding” or potentially crazy-making city crowds. The English countryside does hold a special magic. 477 more words


"Far from the Madding Crowd" Film Review

While I haven’t had the chance to watch many movies this year, I’m not going to pass up on the opportunity to write about one of my favourite actresses nor having beautiful accompany photos of her on my blog, even if I did watch Far from the Madding Crowd two plus weeks ago. 645 more words


Film Review: Far From the Madding Crowd: Endearing Feminist Romance

I have a confession to make: I really, really, really love Period Dramas. There’s just something about history that I’m so transfixed by: the fashion, the scenery, the old customs. 455 more words

Far from the Madding Crowd

This latest screen adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel is a film in which the cinematography ostensibly comprises three elements; innumerable close-ups of Carey Mulligan as feisty farmer Bathsheba Everdene, sweeping panoramas of the English countryside (rolling hills, spectacular sunsets and the like) and myriad moments of men standing slack-jawed and beholden to the splendour of a woman who bewitches them the moment they lay eyes on her. 558 more words
