LONDON (Reuters) - Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd" comes to the big screen in a new adaptation of the English novelist's first literary success that introduced his readers to his fictional rural Wessex settings.

Set in Victorian England, the film stars British actress Carey Mulligan, known for her roles in "The Great Gatsby", "An Education" and "Shame", as the headstrong Bathsheba Everdene who inherits a large farm from her recently deceased uncle.
