When does a romantic story become a classic? When it happened a long time ago, was written by Thomas Hardy or there was unfinished love by the leading lady?

Madame Bovary, Far from the Madding Crowd and A Little Chaos are our chosen films on the subject of love, addiction and romantic women.

Madame Bovary is the Gustave Flaubert classic with Mia Wasikowska as Emma. This Alice has grown up and is seeking endless love when she is caught up in the illusion of lust and romance in this story.


Far from the Madding Crowd gets a hold of Carey Mulligan and this time she has more domain than The Great Gatsby. Will Carey be able to hold strong Bathsheba’s determination for pride?


Kate Winslet looks a little stretched but she possesses the most talent in showing off a woman’s desires. This is A Little Chaos for her as she competes to build a garden for King Louis XIV.
