John Schlesinger's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic novel.
In rural Victorian England, circa 1865, a headstrong young woman inherits her dead uncle's farm. Soon after, three very different men begin to pursue her: a failed sheep farmer; a wealthy landowner; and the one she falls in love with, a reckless military sergeant whose reputation precedes him.
After sending a valentine to her lonely neighbor as a prank, an impetuous woman falls for a hotblooded soldier. Her thoughtless prank soon creates more trouble than she ever thought possible. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Music Score.
Rated BBFC U by the British Board of Film Classification.
