After inheriting her uncle’s farm, the independent and strong-minded Bathsheba (An Education’s Carey Mulligan) attracts the attention of three very different suitors: trustworthy sheep farmer Gabriel Oak (Suite Française’s Matthias Schoenaerts); prosperous, dignified and handsome bachelor William Boldwood (Michael Sheen); and Frank Troy, a charismatic yet reckless Sergeant (Tom Sturridge).
A sweeping new adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s enduring romantic drama that explores the nature of relationships and love, and our ability to overcome hardship through resilience and perseverance. Filmed in the author’s picturesque home county of Dorset by Danish director Vinerberg (The Hunt).
The screening on Tue 19 May 6.15pm is followed by a Post-screening Discussion.
