| Classic Drama/Romance
Warning: I watched this on a flight so not necessarily a visual treat... Set against lovely backdrops of the country side and telling a classic story, Far from the Madding Crowd is the best period drama I've seen since Pride and Prejudice. As a tale, FftMC's characters are as true and real as they ever are - whilst the gender story isn't as important as it might once be (although it's not entirely irrelevant no matter how much I'd like to hope it would be) and the politics of the era hopefully something of the past, this story still explores the plight of love and trying to be true to yourself under outside pressures which, I feel, remains as true today as it ever did. The soundtrack does manage a few mis-steps, but is generally lovely and the overall package feels very polished and beautiful. Casting is solid and the script manages to be modern without losing any of the charm of the classic. The story itself, if you don't already know it, is touching and heart warming - human and full of love and mistakes - and just prefect as a result.
