"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD" (2015) Review
I have never seen "FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD", the 2015 adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 1874 novel, in the theaters. And yet . . . my knowledge of this film led me to view two 前 adaptations. And finally, I found the chance to view this adaptation, directed によって Thomas Vinterberg.
"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD" told the story of a young 19th century rural English woman named Bathsheba Everdeene and the three men in her life - a 羊 farmer-turned-shepherd named Gabriel Oak; her neighbor and owner of the...
Thirty-four years ago, HBO had aired a three-part miniseries about the life and travails of a nineteenth century Southern belle named Virginia Tregan. The miniseries was called "LOUISIANA" and it starred Margot Kidder and Ian Charleson.
Directed によって the late Philippe de Broca, "LOUISIANA" was based upon the "Fausse-Riviere" Trilogy, written によって Maurice Denuzière, one of the screenwriters. It told the story of Virginia's ruthless devotion to her first husband's Louisiana cotton plantation called Bagatelle . . . and her...
"HEAVEN AND HELL: NORTH AND SOUTH BOOK III" (1994) - EPISODE ONE Commentary
If there is one chapter in John Jakes' NORTH AND SOUTH saga that is reviled によって the fans, it the テレビ adaptation of the third one, set after the American Civil War. First of all, the theme of post-war Reconstruction has never been that 人気 with tales about the four-year war. もっと見る importantly, ファン of Jakes' saga seemed to have a low opinion of "HEAVEN AND HELL: NORTH AND SOUTH BOOK III", the 1994 adaptation of Jakes' third North and South novel, published back in 1987.
Twenty-four years before the award-winning HBO miniseries "JOHN ADAMS" aired, the CBS network aired a miniseries about the first U.S. President, George Washington. Simply titled "GEORGE WASHINGTON", this three-part miniseries was based upon two biographies written によって James Thomas Flexner - 1965's "George Washington, the Forge of Experience, 1732–1775" and 1968's "George Washington in the American Revolution, 1775–1783".
"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (2015): EPISODES FIVE TO EIGHT
Within the past year, I had developed a major interest in 作者 Winston Graham's 1945-2002 "POLDARK" literary saga and the two テレビ adaptations of it. Series One of the 秒 adaptation produced によって Debbie Horsfield, premiered on the BBC (in Great Britain) and PBS (in the United States) last year. Consisting of eight episodes, Series One of "POLDARK" was an adaptation of 1945's "Ross Poldark - A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787" and "Demelza - A Novel of Cornwall, 1788-1790".
This adaptation of Jane Austen’s 1818 novel turned out to be the first of the old Jane Austen テレビ adaptations that the BBC aired during the 1970s and 80s. Produced and directed によって Howard Baker, and adapted によって Julian Mitchell; this two-part miniseries starred Ann Firbanks and Bryan Marshall.
As many ファン of Austen’s novel would know, "PERSUASION" told the story of Anne Elliot, the middle daughter of a vain and spendthrift baronet, who finds herself reunited with her former finance, a Naval officer of lesser birth...
Ever since I gave up 読書 the "NANCY DREW" novels at the age of thirteen, I have been a ファン of those written によって Agatha Christie. And that is a hell of a long time. In fact, my fandom toward Christie's novels have extended toward the film and テレビ adaptations. Among those stories that have captured my imagination were the adaptations of the author's 1939 novel, "AND THEN THERE WERE NONE".
To be honest, I have seen at least three adaptations of the 1939 novel - the 1945, 1966 and 1974 adaptations -...
There are times when I find myself amazed at the longevity of Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel, "The Three Musketeers". The novel has been in circulation for nearly 170 years. Hollywood and other film industries have been adapting the novel for the 映画 または テレビ for nearly a century. One adaptation I recently viewed was the Hollywood movie produced and released によって MGM Studios in 1948.
We all know the story. A young Frenchman from Gascon sets out for Paris in the early 17th century to 登録する the King's Musketeers....
"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (1975): EPISODES FIVE TO EIGHT
Last winter, I began watching the BBC's 1975-77 adaptation of Winston Graham's literary series about the life of a British Army officer and American Revolutionary War veteran, following his return to his ホーム in Cornwall. The first four episodes proved to be adaptation of the first novel in Graham's series, 1945's "Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787". Episodes Five to Eight focused on the series' 秒 novel, 1946's "Demelza: A Novel of Cornwall, 1788-1790".
But I’m here to tell you, cinematic lake diving aside, you’re wrong. Mr. Darcy isn’t Austen’s best hero. One of her lesser-known gentlemen is: Mr. Henry Tilney – the bookish, amiable clergyman of Northanger Abbey.
