Mainstream cinema, as has been observed, has lost interest in original stories. Leading the race to the bottom, Hollywood's superhero franchises burn through directors, actors and comic book premises at a bracing rate, then recycle them a couple of years later with new directors and actors.First published in 1874, Hardy's novel tells the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan).As Vinterberg's film begins, Mulligan's voiceover introduction to Everdene's character cuts immediately to the chase. You can tell Everdene's independently minded because, when she's sure no one's looking, she doesn't ride sidesaddle.As one or two English-lit teachers have noted, Hardy's plot is riddled with coincidence and, immediately after Oak's first effort to propose marriage, his and Everdene's prospects both change dramatically.The problems arise from restricting the plot's through-line to Everdene and the clockwork of coincidence that draws her three suitors into her orbit, thus inadvertent comedy.
