Storyline

Her neighbor Beth Hardiment runs a writers retreat with her unfaithful and womanizer husband Nicholas Hardiment who is a successful writer of Inchcombe adventures and cheats on Beth every now and then with younger women. Tamara was the sweetheart of the handyman Andy Cobb, whose family owned the Winnard Farm but lost it to Tamara's family, and when she sees him, she rekindles her love for him. However, when Tamara travels to interview the unpleasant drummer of the Swipe band Ben Sergeant, he has just found that his girlfriend Fran is having an affair with the other musician Steven Culley and he breaks up with the band. Tamara and Ben have a love affair and Ben moves to Winnard.

Trivia

In addition to being loosely based on a novel by Thomas Hardy, including a character who is writing a book about Hardy, and having a photograph of Hardy prominently displayed in one scene, the location filming was done in Dorset, where most of Hardy's novels are set - "Wessex" being a thinly fictionalized Dorset. The small ad for the writers' retreat that appears at the beginning of the film is also headed with the title of the novel: "Far from the Madding Crowd". See more »

Goofs

When the two girls are hiding up a tree having let down the tyres on Nicholas's Range Rover, they take a picture of him kissing Tamara. They are a good 15ft off the ground and equally far from the subjects of the picture. However, when the photo is sent to his wife's phone she looks at a picture which is clearly taken at ground level and from a few feet away (or with a very good zoom lens). See more »

Quotes

Tamara Drewe: So, who are your influences?
Ben Sergeant: Everyone asks that. I mean, what do you want me to say? Phil Collins? Animal from The Muppets?

Entertainement I love
5 August 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A very, very good movie, no doubt. Everything, in particular, each man, woman, chicken, car, tear, cow and dog and meadow, each pop and tune is on the right place. Excellent dialogs, sparkling soundtrack, gorgeous photography, rich colors, fresh, witty and ebullient, perfectly balanced black and ... regular humor. The story is nicely knitted, a lot of grey matter must have been consumed for the dialogs. Some lines have got what it takes to become a "quote". I loved it! Found a few British stereotypes? So what? Troubles to follow the quick replies in the original English version? Cannot follow the subtitles while trying to translate the cream of the jokes? So what? Watch it again!! I will!
