4 stars out of 4 -- [T]he enthralling adaptation FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD takes that landscape and taps into its vibrant beauty, complexity and romantic potential, while still remaining faithful to the source.
Rating: 3/5 -- Conventionality is almost surpassed by fine performances and some technical flair, yet the emphatically romance-driven conclusion is all the more disappointing alongside such winning translation of Hardy's rural verisimilitude. Full Review
One Room With A View
4 stars out of 5 -- Extremely well done and well acted, it’s an attractive, appealing, involving adaptation...
Vinterberg's confident direction and understanding of the radical potential of Hardy's original material combines with the film's remarkable performances to render this well above the usual 'costume drama' book-to-screen adaptation. Full Review
The Blue Lenses
4 stars out of 5 -- Thomas Vinterberg allows the Dorset countryside, impeccable costuming and production design to do the talking, creating an uncontroversial, classy and faithful adaptation.
3 stars out of 4 -- [Vinterberg] gets pitch-perfect performances from Schoenaerts, Sheen and Sturridge and brings out the wild side in Mulligan, who can hold a close-up like nobody's business. She's a live wire in a movie that knows how to stir up a classic for the here and now.
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Happily ever-after and true love is not always very straight forward and "Far from the Madding Crowd" most certainly conveys this. Full Review
