'. . . the past was yesterday; the future, tomorrow; never, the next day'

It's the 1870s and Bathsheba Everdene is a woman ahead of her time. Within the confines of rural English society, her independence and impulsive nature quickly land her at the heart of a web of love and lies. Three very different men hope to claim her. But Bathsheba is fickle. And as she forges her own path through the politics of love and marriage, disaster follows in her wake.

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is a tale of loyalty, obsession and tragedy from a storytelling master. Soon to be a film starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge.
