From the excellent ensemble cast, to the gorgeous cinematography and the romantic tension that threads through the story, there are many pleasures to be had in the upcoming “Far From The Madding Crowd.” But one that might surprise you is a song from the film’s star, Carey Mulligan. Well, today we have the exclusive rendition from the film’s soundtrack.
Co-starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge, and Juno Temple, the adaptation of Thomas Hardy‘s novel, from director Thomas Vinterberg, tells the story of the independent and strong-willed Bathsheba Everdene, who finds three men vying for heart. During a dinner sequence with two of her suitors present, Bathsheba sings the traditional ballad “Let No Man Steal Your Thyme,” perhaps as a warning she will not be easily swayed. Mulligan is joined by Michael Sheen partway through the tune.
“Far From The Madding Crowd” opens on May 1st. The soundtrack featuring this song and the score from Craig Armstrong will be released on April 28th. Listen below and check out the sequence from the movie (via Vanity Fair).
