  • Todd McCarthy

    Given the challenge of solving a problem like Bathsheba, Mulligan succeeds, more than Christie did, in providing an answer.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    What does register at every turn is a vibrant sense of time and place that pulls us into Hardy’s bygone world even when the drama falters.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There is ultimately something very unbalanced in this movie: the female lead and one male support are outstanding; another supporting male is fine and the third is frankly uncomfortable and miscast.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    It’s a title to be admired, certainly, but for all its visual fireworks, Far From The Madding Crowd doesn’t truly ignite an emotional spark.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    Director Thomas Vinterberg’s romantic rollercoaster honors Hardy’s rustic vibe. Remarkably, too, he’s made a thoroughly modern film anyone can relate to — it’s like a “what a woman wants” discussion set in Victorian times. It’s also an instant classic.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The latest version of Hardy's 1874 classic works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg,who also made two other masterful dramas, 2012's "The Huntand" 1998's "The Celebration."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    He (Vinterberg) has accomplished something that is both extremely simple and extremely difficult: This is a gorgeous literary adaptation true to its period and its source material in almost every respect, largely shot in the “Hardy country” along the south coast of England. It’s also a film that feels charged with life and hunger and romantic-erotic energy. Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    If it isn’t as decorous and deft as the Jane Austen romances of an earlier literary (and cinematic) age, the longing is still there in a story that feels more lived-in, brutish and realistic.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The movie is as quietly assured as its heroine, Bathsheba Everdene, gracefully played by Carey Mulligan.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Handsomely mounted, this is a period drama in which both unspoken demands and stated appetites drive the emotions that simmer below the surface from the first frame. And though this doesn’t transcend what you might expect from the genre, few movies are delivered with this much craft and care.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With a steely resilience burning beneath her delicate, creamy complexion, Carey Mulligan brings remarkable nuance and a rich inner life to the role of Bathsheba Everdene.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Director Thomas Vinterberg and Carey Mulligan, who plays Bathsheba Everdene, bring exciting life to the story.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    It’s a wholly respectable adaptation, though perhaps a flash or two more of wildness wouldn’t have gone amiss.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Director Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration) has always enjoyed thumbing his nose at stuffy cinematic conventions, and while he’s obviously enchanted by Hardy’s text, his movie is fun because he’s keen not to give it too much respect.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Allie Gemmill

    Vinterberg's Far From the Madding Crowd is a wondrous feat: at turns tender, dramatic, fragile and bold, it's the definitive adaptation.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Jane Crowther

    Fresh enough to engage newcomers, respectful enough to appease scholars, this is – for genre fans – pure period-drama porn.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    Extremely well done and well acted, it’s an attractive, appealing, involving adaptation, just not as iconic as the ’60s film.

    Empire Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    She’s (Mulligan) got the best lopsided smile in the business, and she uses it well to size up her three bachelors. They’re just no match for her.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Far From the Madding Crowd is a Masterpiece Theatre version of Thomas Hardy’s 1874 novel, shot with sumptuous taste and care, rife with emotions repressed and unbound, and featuring expertly nuanced performances from a tony, mostly British cast. It will greatly please discerning audiences while causing Hardy to spin discreetly in his grave. That’s a fair trade-off, especially if the movie sends you back to the book.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    It’s Belgian actor Schoenaerts who will leave the target audience atwitter. Seemingly incapable of cracking a smile, he fits securely in the stoic-farmer tradition that stretches from John Wayne in “The Quiet Man” to Russell Crowe in “The Water Diviner.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The film never allows any of its characters to fall into stereotype; they are complex creatures, full of anger and disappointment and passion, and even the weakest among them is not bereft of honor.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    I can't help but wish this new Far From the Madding Crowd came with the thrill of interpretive discovery, the way Jane Campion gave Henry James' "Portrait of a Lady" a good shaking-up or, more conventionally, the way James Ivory mainstreamed E.M. Forester in "A Room With a View" and "Howards End."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    There's nothing here to astound or surprise; the movie neither exceeds nor falls below expectations. Those who love Hardy and/or the less-filmy romances of his era will derive the most from Far from the Madding Crowd.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Whether his film is lush or rolling in the muck, it always has a tactile quality that makes it accessible, which is also true of the performances from his (mostly) well-chosen cast. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Vinterberg may rush the final act, but he gets pitch-perfect performances from Schoenaerts, Sheen and Sturridge and brings out the wild side in Mulligan, who can hold a close-up like nobody's business. She's a live wire in a movie that knows how to stir up a classic for the here and now.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The latest film adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd will delight fans of period dramas. It checks off the required boxes with solid acting, gorgeous cinematography and all the frustrating, glorious emotional restraint that you expect from a romance set in Victorian England.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Vinterberg aces the metaphor-heavy scene in which Troy demonstrates his swordsmanship for an inexperienced, dazzled Bathsheba.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Its virtues are many and this filmed version of Hardy’s fourth novel is well worth seeing. It rises head and shoulders above most of what we’ve been seeing lately.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The most obvious thing to say about Far From the Madding Crowd is also the most bizarre, given the source material. It’s buoyant, pleasant and easygoing. That’s a recommendation of sorts, and also an expression of disappointment.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Between the sheer on-screen beauty and the finely wrought performances of Mulligan and Schoenaerts, Far from the Madding Crowd has its appeal. Yet like unrequited love, one can't help but lament what might have been.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    It’s refreshing to see a prestige costume drama so interested in its heroine that it treats “happily ever after” as an afterthought.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Sometimes seeing a movie throws the source material into sharper relief.... Watching the textually faithful film adaptation by director Thomas Vinterberg and writer David Nicholls, though, the piece comes off more as a glossy, well-acted romance novel.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Feels like a missed opportunity to do a country romantic melodrama in grand style.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    The lack of real analysis or consideration leaves this perilously close to a Goldilocks-style depiction of privileged female indecision.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Vinterberg's Far From the Madding Crowd is a lovely adaptation. What's more, it's downright entertaining.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Hardy gave his heroine a symphonic range, and all an actress can do is pick out certain tones and strains — the fluted whimsy by which Bathsheba is occasionally stirred, or the brassiness of her anger. Julie Christie was the more accomplished flirt, and her beauty was composed of fire and air, whereas Mulligan relies more darkly on earth and water.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    To be fair, Far From The Madding Crowd isn’t the kind of novel that lends itself to adaptation; it was originally published as a monthly serial, and still reads that way.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    An adaptation not firing on all cylinders.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    As written by Hardy, Bathsheba is bracingly whole and human; here she’s been outlined, and thus circumscribed, by an eager student’s highlighter.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Far From the Madding Crowd will no doubt captivate future generations of tenth-graders who couldn’t be bothered to read the book, but it flattens the complex characters and grand scope of Hardy’s novel into an airless and overly truncated CliffsNotes version.
