The Sydney Film Festival program is looking fantastic. We have selected three of our top literary films that we will be heading to in June. There is something for everyone, from Thomas Hardy's classic Far from the Madding Crowd starring Carey Mulligan to a new interpretation of an ageing Sherlock Holmes starring Ian McKellen.
Based on Thomas Hardy's literary classic, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), a fiercely independent and spirited young woman who inherits her uncle's farm. Financially autonomous (a rarity in Victorian times), beautiful and headstrong, she attracts three very different and determined suitors. Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer captivated by her wilfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of a woman trying to maintain her independence explores the nature of love, passion, relationships, choice and the human ability to overcome hardship through resilience.
