I guess since the main character from 50 Shades of Grey mentioned she’s a big Thomas Hardy fan, now we’re gonna get a bunch of Thomas Hardy adaptations with this one being the FOURTH time his 1874 romantic drama has been made into a film.

Basically, as Beau and Joe put it in their review, Carey Mulligan becomes independently wealthy and must choose “Fuck, Marry, or Kill” between a shepherd (Matthias Schoenaerts), a military dude (Tom Sturridge) and a rich guy (Michael Sheen). She may win but it looks like we all lose. Check out their review…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
