Review of 'Far From The Madding Crowd'
Perfectly acceptable adaptation of the Hardy novel - was it really necessary given the earlier one with Julie Christie? I dunno...this was watchable and engaging enough, though didn't leave me with any profound thoughts. Except...what's the law if you do remarry after your husband has been declared dead, and then he turns up? And why was the rascally Frank, who is apparently high-born, a sergeant? Did I miss something?
Watched on a laptop propped up on a coffee table - didn't trust the HDMI cable to display properly from Windows...
