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 neighborhood's largest farm, William Boldwood;...

"BLANCHE FURY" (1948) Review

I suspect that many ファン of costume dramas would be fascinated to know about the series of period dramas released によって the British film industry during the post-World War II era. A good number of those films were released によって a British film studio known as Gainsborough Pictures. But not all of them were released through this particular studio. Some were released through other studios または production companies . . . like the 1948 period drama, "BLANCHE FURY".

Based upon the 1939 novel written によって Marjorie Bowen (under the pseudonym of Joseph Stearling), "BLANCHE FURY" told...

Twentieth-Century 狐, フォックス was never a studio that I would associate with 映画 about the British Empire. Mind you, the studio had released several during the period between its formation in 1935 and the 1953 release of "KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES". Yet . . . it never seemed to produce many productions on European imperialism in compare to studios like Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Just recently, I watched "KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES" and discovered that it was a remake of John Ford's 1929 adventure film, "THE BLACK WATCH". And...

Below is my review of the 2004 BBC miniseries, "NORTH AND SOUTH", which is an adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's 1855 novel:

"NORTH AND SOUTH" (2004) Review

Mind you, I have been aware of the 2004 miniseries for the...
