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

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
