Far From The Madding Crowd

  • Carey Mulligan
    Production Company DNA Films/Fox Searchlight

    Far from the Madding Crowd is an upcoming drama film directed by Thomas Vinterberg and starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, and Juno Temple. Jessica plays Liddy, Bathsheba's loyal, right-hand woman. 

     It is an adaptation of the 1874 novel of the same name by Thomas Hardy. This film marks the fourth time this novel became a film: the third version was directed by John Schlesinger in 1967 with Julie Christie.


    As Bathsheba’s mischievous servant-companion Liddy, Jessica Barden is gloriously provocative and amusing too.
