Tamara Drewe


Tamara Drewe
Based on a comic strip which itself was based on Hardy's ''Far From the Madding Crowd,'' this is about a young woman's adventures in rural England. It is set in a country village stocked with pompous writers, rich weekenders, bourgeois bohemians, a horny rock star, and assorted livestock. When Tamara returns to the village of her youth, life for the locals is thrown upside down. She's had a nose job, and been transformed into a devastating beauty. As infatuations, jealousies, love affairs and career ambitions collide among the inhabitants of the neighbouring farmsteads, she sets a contemporary comedy of manners into play using the oldest magic in the book: sex appeal.

Jason Anderson quote iconWhile Tamara Drewe may owe a few strands of DNA to Thomas Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd, this British movie is not one for putting on literary airs. Instead, director Stephen Frears pitches his adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ Hardy-inspired Guardian newspaper comic strip as a breezy provincial farce.
