'Far From the Madding Crowd' is set in Victorian England. The main character is Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), a headstrong woman who thinks she may be too independent to ever get married. She is definitely not a typical woman of that era. As a result of that (or maybe in spite of it), men seem to be drawn to her. In fact, three different men are interested in her at the same time. So, what's a woman to do??
