Paloma Baeza stars as Bathsheba Everdene, a beautiful and proud woman with a fiercely independent spirit, in this lush adaptation of Thomas Hardy's turbulent 19th-century tale of passion and destruction, Far from the Madding Crowd.

Uncertain of her future but unwilling to sacrifice her freedom, young Bathsheba rejects the proposal of dependable Gabriel Oak (Nathaniel Parker, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries), only to become his employer when a cruel twist of fate destroys the loyal shepherd's prospects. Still in love, Gabriel can only stand by and watch as Bathsheba mischievously flirts with her neighbor, Mr. Boldwood (Nigel Terry), unleashing a passionate obsession that burns deep within the reserved Boldwood. Both men forsake their hearts, however, upon the arrival of the dashing, womanizing soldier Frank Troy (Jonathan Firth). Despite being in love with another woman himself, Troy sees a challenge in Bathsheba and sets out to win her.

Though she ultimately makes her choice, Bathsheba's marriage is instantly doomed, setting in motion a dramatic chain of events in this turbulent 19th-century tale of passion and destruction.

This is my favorite version of this story. I read the book (loved it)and this version of Far From the Madding Crowd closely follows the book. It is beautiful in that everything is done to make the characters and the story shine in peaceful way. Nothing is out of balance or sensationalized in a Hollywood sort-of-way.

Much ado about nothing

They say curiosity killed that cat, but this kitty survived a disappointing story. Perhaps it wasnt caused by the story line, but by the difficult dialogue to understand. My constant What? or Huh? did indeed get in the way of enjoyment.

I tried to buy it once a long time ago, but could not get it. I hope I am not disappointed if they cant fill the back order.

This story follows the Masterpiece Theatre tradition of realistic characters in believable circumstances. One of the best, and I wanted it to go on forever.
