Far From the Madding Crowd

I don't have time to watch movies nowadays... certainly one that takes more than two hours. But I recently watched this movie... Far From the Madding Crowd...

I have always been drawn to classic movies, ones that are especially set in England. I'm the Jane Austen, Bronte sisters, Downton Abbey type of woman.
