Watch Carey in the following Far From The Madding Crowd TV Spot clips and two featurettes below...
In this exclusive 4-minute featurette, we are introduced to Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan), a tough, feisty landowner in 19th century England. And we meet the three very different men—played by three very different actors—that are vying for her affection. First is the virile soldier Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), whose bright red uniform is a sure sign of heat and danger. Then there’s Bathsheba’s middle-aged neighbor, William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), tiptoeing awkwardly around his own feelings for her. And finally Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a humble shepherd whose proposal of marriage is rejected in an early scene, but who continues to crisscross with Bathsheba as the story goes on. The clip features interviews with all four actors, in addition to Vinterberg and screenwriter David Nicholls, who puts it best when he says, “We wanted to provide Bathsheba with a difficult choice.” Indeed they did.
Far From the Madding Crowd, based on Thomas Hardy’s classic romantic novel, opens in limited release on May 1.
