A beautiful young woman maintains relationships with three very different men.

Director: Thomas Vinterberg
Screenwriter: David Nicholls, from the novel by Thomas Hardy
Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Juno Temple,
Release date: May 1, 2015

This looks like a very different mode for Vinterberg, but he seems to imbue it with his usual intensity. Digital colors can certainly be stunning* (the red of that uniform!). Picturesque as hell but it seems with air enough to breathe.

*EDIT: shot on fucking film apparently.

I loved this book. Seems like a pretty sumptuous adaptation.
