Since we’re in England anyway….
Here’s the trailer for the new version of Far from the Madding Crowd, starring the radiant Carey Mulligan as “Bathsheba Everdene.” Note that v familiar last name. Suzanne Collins has said that Katniss Everdeen owes her last name to Bathsheba Everdene, because, “The two are very different, but both struggle with knowing their hearts.”
Among other things, Bathsheba Everdene must choose from three suitors, played by Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, and Tom Sturridge, w/a distracting mustache.
Far from the Madding Crowd opens today in the US and UK.
