Far from the Madding Crowd: the new film

Here's Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, president of the Thomas Hardy Society and Bridport Electric Palace patron, saying a few words before Far From The Madding Crowd was unveiled to its Dorset audience at last night's gala screening.
Here's a review by my alter ego.

Go to see it if you can.

That's about it.

  1. Relieved to see your review is fairly positive: I loved the Schlesinger film so much I wasn't sure I could face this version with the usually po-faced Mulligan, Tony Blair/Brian Clough and a Belgian (!). But it's piqued my interest sufficiently to watch it with enthusiasm when it's on Sky Box Office.....

    1. Good! I really enjoyed it but was won over immediately by the setting. I will be interested to know what you think.

It's blowing a hooley out there.  The wind is lashing against the windows and the dogs are play fighting in front of the Aga before...
