The Return of the Native ()

directed by
featuring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Clive Owen, Ray Stevenson, Steven Mackintosh, Claire Skinner

Unlike the barren and forbidding moors elsewhere in England, Return of the Native's Egdon Heath attires itself in vibrant wildflowers, mossy hillsides, winding streams, arching footbridges, and undulant meadows. An enchantress would be at home in this place, but not Eustacia Vye, portrayed by Zeta-Jones. Though coveted by every man in Egdon Heath -- and every boy old enough to stare -- the beautiful Eustacia longs for the smoking chimneys and broad stone buildings of Paris. When a native of Egdon Heath, Clym Yeobright Ray Stevenson, returns from his job in Paris as a jeweler, Vye stuns him with her beauty and marries him in hopes of persuading him to take her to Paris. But, alas, Clym is a clod at heart. He vows to remain in Egdon Heath to teach and edify. After his eyesight deteriorates, Eustacia turns her attentions to rakish Damon Wildeve Clive Owen, and the plot begins to churn and curdle. Mike Cummings, Rovi Hide synopsis

different but good

by jwhitt on Apr 19, 2010

This movie had a lot of conflicting characters, but it was helpful to see things in the light of the times and the cultures it portrayed. The ending came not as how I would have imagined but it got things back to where they should be.
