Far from the Madding Crowd (HD) Vudu / Movies Anywhere Redeem
Bathsheba Everdene catches the eye of local farmer Gabriel Oak when she arrives to live with her aunt in Dorset. Declining his offer of marriage, their lives continue to intertwine as fate brings contrasting fortunes to both of them.
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching 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 explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
