5 thoughts on “Top Five Thomas Hardy Film Adaptions

  1. I’ve read most of Hardy’s novels – my dad started me off with The Mayor of Casterbridge when I was in highschool. I think I’ve been scarred for life as a result. I enjoy, appreciate and devour the realism, but the unremitting tragedy of every. single. one. has become just too much for me. And then I started reading George Eliot novels (Orwell Farm, The Mill on the Floss), and I don’t know if I’ll read any more of those, lol. Guess I’m a wuss. But I’m also a big Rufus Sewell fan and I didn’t read that book, so maybe I can be swayed to watch The Woodlanders one day.

  2. OMG, how have I not seen the Return of the Native? It sounds like I need to see Jude also.

    Pretty disappointed by the trailer for Far from the Maddening Crowd though – Carey Mulligan is so miscast to me, she just has none of Bathsheba’s fire and passion.

  3. I really like all three versions of FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (that I have seen). But my favorite is the 1998 television version with Paloma Baeza.

  4. As much as I enjoyed the 1967 version of “Far From the Madding Crowd”, I found the costumes to be a major disappointment – especially those for Julie Christie.
