"Nic Roeg's moody cinematography captures both the beauty and harshness of the English landscapes."
Julie Christie and Terence Stamp star in John Schlesinger's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic novel. In rural Victorian England, circa 1865, a headstrong young woman (Christie) inherits her dead uncle's farm. Soon after, three very different men begin to pursue her: a failed sheep farmer (Alan Bates); a wealthy landowner (Peter Finch); and the one she falls in love with, a reckless military sergeant (Stamp) whose reputation precedes him.
