Far From the Madding Crowd
PG| 2 hr. 49 min.
Based on Thomas Hardy's renowned novel, this British drama focuses on Bathsheba Everdene (Julie Christie), a beautiful young woman who inherits a picturesque farm from her uncle and is determined to run it herself. Three very different suitors -- Francis Troy (Terence Stamp), an intense soldier; William Boldwood (Peter Finch), a middle-aged farmer; and Gabriel Oak (Alan Bates), a shepherd of modest means -- all contend for Bathsheba's hand, and conflict is inevitable.
