A beautiful screen pairing, Julie Christie and Terence Stamp star as lovers in this glorious 4K restoration of Thomas Hardy’s epic love story. Headstrong and independent, farmer Bathsheba Everdene is among the most modern of 19th century heroines. Struggling to manage her Dorset farm, she captivates the hearts of three different men: a hardworking sheep farmer, a wealthy but tortured landowner, and a reckless and violent swordsman. But as emotions become entangled, free spirited folly soon leads to devastating tragedy. Director John Schlesinger and cinematographer Nicolas Roeg beautifully frame the passions and tragedy at the film’s heart against the harsh, sodden beauty of the Dorset landscape.
