Sneak Preview | Q&A with Thomas Vinterberg and actor Matthias Schoenaerts
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), a fiercely independent and spirited young woman who inherits her uncle’s farm. A rarity in Victorian times—financially autonomous, beautiful, and headstrong—she attracts three very different but determined suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her 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, while trying to maintain her own independence, explores the nature of relationships and love—as well as the human ability to overcome hardship through resilience and perseverance. A Fox Searchlight release.
The U.K. premiere for the movie will be held tomorrow in London. Matthias and co-star Carey Mulligan are expected to attend the premiere so be sure to come back later for our premiere coverage!

Far From the Madding Crowd
STARRING Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge
DIRECTED BY Thomas Vinterberg
RELEASE DATE May 1
Thomas Hardy’s 1874 novel is an oft-adapted classic, and it was that prestige that gave star Carey Mulligan pause. “The costume drama is always an easy box to put British actors into,” she says. “I’ve avoided them—all those stuffy interiors and mahogany-paneled rooms in grand estate buildings. But this one starts with her turning down a proposal, as opposed to devoting her life to finding a husband. That was a very modern idea to begin a story with.” The proposal that she turns down is from a quiet shepherd named Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts). Their paths continue to cross in fate-driven ways as she’s wooed by a repressed neighbor (Michael Sheen) and a seductive soldier (Tom Sturridge).
Mulligan’s director was also conscious of breathing fresh air. Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt) shot two-thirds of the movie outdoors, amid the same verdant, sea-breeze surroundings in southwest England that Hardy described in the book. “There was so much beautiful stuff to show,” he says, while noting the pitfalls of nature: too much noise. “Horses and boars and frogs and dogs and sheep—they can be a tough ride,” he says. The gorgeous scenery and light—including a sunset-drenched doozy of a climactic scene—were worth all the barking and bleating.
Fox Searchlight UK released a new U.K. poster and featurette. We have added the poster and high definition screencaptures in our gallery. The featurette can be found in our video archive.
