Tamara Drewe

This romantic comedy/drama from director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, High Fidelity, The Queen) is based on the British comic strip by Posy Simmonds—which, in turn, was loosely inspired by Thomas Hardy's Far From The Madding Crowd. That's quite a pedigree for a rather simple tale of a young newspaper writer (Gemma Arterton from Quantum of Solace) who returns to her small hometown to sell off her childhood home. In the process, she kicks off a series of mad, romantic entanglements among the locals. 111 minutes R.
