He had a huge success with false paedophile-thriller The Hunt but Thomas Vinterberg has always been an enormously talented Dutch film maker. He’s been working for a long time, associated at first with the Dogme 95 movement but, since the success of The Hunt, he’s slowly become vastly more “internationally known” – as in, “known in America”.
The news that a hero of Dutch cinema is acheiving fame in the Us is exciting enough, but his big-budget adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel Far From The Madding Crowd is looking like it could be the cherry on top of a slow-burning cake. Most likely set for release in 2014, his adaptation stars Carey Mulligan and Bullhead and Rust & Bone‘s Matthias Schoenaerts in the story of what you could call a love square, being Mulligan’s enticement of three different suitors – played by Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, and Michael Sheen.
