    Beautifully photograped poignant version of Hardy novel.

    I really thought Catherine Zeta-Jones was Hispanic until I saw this! She really fooled me in Zorro. Who knew she was Welsh? Seriously?

    I'm sure people who haven't read the book will like this. Basically, they took the majority of the symbolism from the original novel out, and what they were left with was a shallow historical romance. Accents were atrocious too, and some of the plot was fiddled with if I remember rightly. My English class had great fun ripping the piss out of this film. The sad thing is, I know Zeta-Jones can act, but her talent was mysteriously absent here.
