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.
