Fox Searchlight Pictures has provided ComingSoon.net with exclusive photos from Thomas Vinterberg’s Far from the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge.
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
The producers are Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich. The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Charlotte Bruus Christenson (The Hunt), Oscar-winning editor Claire Simpson (Platoon, The Constant Gardener, A Most Wanted Man), production designer Kave Quinn (Harry Brown), four-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Janet Patterson (The Piano) and Golden Globe-winning composer Craig Armstrong (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby).
