Michael Winterbottom United Kingdom, 1996

Lorna Singh's rating of the film Jude

Must have been a daunting task to adapt Hardy's dense novel into 2 hours.Explains why the themes of religion and conforming to society were not explored as much.But the script did focus on this unorthodox relationship. Some good performances,especially from Christopher Eccleston ( brilliant in 'Let Him Have It' )
