Marinos Koutsomichalis's rating of the film Jude

While trying to transcend his working class background, Jude discovers love, social prejudice, injustice and the flip-side of an era that has been well idealised in other movies. Overall this is a nice feature film based on a novel by Thomas Hardy, my only objection the exaggerated drama towards its end - didn't really worked for me. Not bad tho.
