This handsome pastoral romance based on the book by Thomas Hardy is an old-fashioned movie-going pleasure, the kind of film we just don't get that often anymore. Lead actress Carey Mulligan turns in a stellar performance, as does British actor Michael Sheen, who portrays one of three suitors seeking to win the favor of Mulligan's character. The other great performance in director Thomas Vinterberg's film comes from cinematographer Charlotte Bruus Christensen, who treats light like a powdery tactile material. Her English countryside is a place of piercing greens, bruised clouds and buttery sunrises.
