Fox Searchlight and NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Present a Screening of Far From the Madding Crowd at UCLA James Bridges Theater with Melnitz Movies
Directed by Thomas Vinterberg
Thursday, April 30th at 7:00 PM at The James Bridges Theater
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.
