The first trailer has arrived for the romantic drama Far From the Madding Crowd based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel. Carey Mulligan takes on the lead role of a woman wooed by three persistent men. Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, and Matthias Schoenaerts co-star as the suitors hoping to win the hand of Bathsheba (Mulligan).
Far From the Madding Crowd was directed by Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) and will open in theaters in 2015.
Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; Frank Troy (Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
