The Very Great Ciarán Hinds acting in The Mayor of Casterbridge a rare treat
on 28 December 2015
Ciarán Hinds in my estimation is one of our most accomplished British actors, and anything with him in has great merit in my opinion and well worth watching. The Mayor of Casterbridge is one of Thomas Hardy’s very finest novels and I never guessed for one moment that anyone could do Thomas Hardy very sensational novel justice. But this adaptation is very faithful and true to the novel. Never at any point did I find the film boring, but extremely enchanting and captivating and all the actors are marvelous. The film captures perfectly Thomas Hardy’s 19th century world and the rural life which is at the heart of the story. If like me you love and adore Classic English Literature and might not have read the novel. This is a very great, plausible and realistic with superb acting and story telling. I wholeheartedly recommend this film as being marvelous and thoroughly entertaining. So buy it today you won’t be sorry.
