What would you want from a movie? A heart warming drama? A romantic love story? Something moving makes you cry? Some spirit you admire and learn from?
Far From the Madding Crowd has them all! Story started in the late 19th Century, Ms. Bathsheba Everdene is beautiful, intelligent and independent. The latter personality which not many women afford to have at that time becomes the most charm point of her. In the film, we see her going through up and down in her life, choosing between independence and marriage, growing stronger. Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, this film interprets it well. Carey Mulligan stars Ms. Everdene. With her own charm, Carey gives this character a cute little girl figure but strong head interpretation.
Most of the film was shot at Dorset, a county in South West England on the English Channel coast. It not only has the typical British scenery of countryside but also has the beautiful coastline. Therefore, the audience can enjoy the drama with the spectacular scenery. Last but not least, the soundtrack of this movie is tremendous! It can be very soothing and makes you melt into the scene. It can make you feel so hollow and almost burst into tears. At the scene which Bathsheba was dancing with Gabriel, somehow I felt want to cry although it was such a beautiful moment.
No matter you want to cry out loud, or want to grab a chance to wash your eyeballs. Go to see Far From the Madding Crowd!
