Rural Dorset in the 1870s. Bathsheba Everdine (Carey Mulligan) is a young woman determined to defy the restrictive social conventions of Victorian society and find her own way in life. The inheritance of a working farm, left to her by an uncle, provides an opportunity for her to take charge of her future, but also brings her to the attention of three very different suitors; the dependable shepherd Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), wealthy landowner William Boldwood (Michael Sheen) and handsome soldier Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge). Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) brings us a moving and intelligent new screen version of Thomas Hardy’s pastoral novel exploring the nature of relationships and love.
