far from the madding crowd

Next year we'll be able to see the movie adaptation
by director Stephen Frears of the outstanding
Posy Simmonds' ”Tamara Drewe” graphic novel.

I met the fancy cartoon columnist a few years back
and I suddenly fell in love with Posy's storyboard style:
she has a brilliant eye for the look of things and her
drawings are in some sort fashionable.

Based upon a modern reworking of Thomas Hardy's
”Far from the madding crowd” the adventures of Tamara
were formerly weekly published by The Guardian
and when the book came out edited by Jonathan Cape
I quickly grabbed it.
Can't wait to see it on screen, too.
