Brit Movies: First Look at Far From the Madding Crowd Currently Filming in Dorset

We have a first look at the new version of Far From the Madding Crowd, which is currently filming on location in Dorset. Newer Anglotopia readers may not know that this is one of my favorite books and I’m really looking forward to this.

I was rather skeptical they could make Carey Mulligan look like Bathsheba, but I think they’ve pulled it off.

    We were in Dorset in the middle of October and visited Sherbourne while they were preparing for filming. The Abbey’s yard had been transformed into the market where Bathsheba sold her sheep. We also saw workers painting store fronts to make them look authentically Victorian. The entire town was visibly excited about the whole enterprise!

    I’ve always loved “Far From the Madding Crowd.” It ends far more happily than most of Thomas Hardy’s novels. I think Carey Mulligan will make a fine Bathsheba. I loved her in “Bleak House” and “The Great Gatsby.”
