4.0 from 0 reviews

A lavish, long adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 19th-century classic about the beautiful Bathsheba (Christie) and the three very different men who love her. Her first love is handsome and wayward soldier Sgt. Troy (Stamp), her second the local noble lord William Boldwood (Finch), and her third the ever-loving and long-patient farmer Gabriel Oaks (Bates). Christie is well cast as the much-desired beauty. Gorgeous cinematography by Nicolas Roeg. Remade for British TV in 1997.
