Far From The Madding Crowd is an evocative and sumptuous new adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic novel set in the 19th Century. It is an acclaimed successor to the original feature film of over 30 years ago. Introducing newcomer Paloma Baeza who co-stars with Nathaniel Parker (Vanity Fair), Jonathan Firth (Middlemarch) and Nigel Terry (Wycliffe). It is a passionate and destructive tale with all the familiar Hardy themes of betrayal and the pain of love, yet it is also one of his warmest and most humorous works.
The arrival of Bathsheba Everdene as mistress of Weatherbury Farm causes quite a stir in the all-male environment of the Corn Exchange. A beautiful and proud young woman with a fiercely independent spirit, she soon ensnares and almost destroys the lives of the three men who love her - local shepherd Gabriel Oak, gentleman farmer Mr Boldwood and the womanising Sergeant Frank Troy.
