REVIEW:
Based on a book by Thomas Hardy.
A book I have not read, so I will not be making any comparisons there. I can only comment on the film.
Which it was incredible.
I didn't want to like Bathsheba. She was full of making the wrong choices and you couldn't help but want to scream at her while watching. She does have a lot on her plate though. During a time when women were pressured to be quiet and know their place as a wife, with nothing more. 
Gabriel. 
He gets the gentleman of the century award! Quite a character, and I found myself rooting for him the whole film. No joke. He is the kind of character that ladies swoon over.
The ending made the whole movie. It was so beautiful that I cried happy tears. Yep. Sweet like sugar it was.
This is another movie that is perfect for date night!

5/5
