Bathsheba Evergreen, the beautiful and independent heroine of Hardy’s classic novel, is torn between three suitors of wildly divergent character and social standing. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love as well as the human ability to withstand hardship through perseverance. Carey Mulligan’s Bathsheba is every bit as much a Hardy heroine for our times as Julie Christie’s was for the late Sixties.
