‘Tamara Drewe’ Trailer Retains Naughty Drama of the Comic [Video]
In preparation for the October 8 release of "Tamara Drewe," Sony Classics' official trailer has officially landed on Yahoo! Based on Posy Simmonds' 2005-2007 comic strip reimagining of Thomas Harding's "Far From the Madding Crowd," the trailer sees former Bond girl Gemma Arterton take on the role of Tamara, as she practically devastates the town of her youth with nothing more than a nose job (and lots of naughty behavior). Sony even retained a portion of the comics' aesthetic by using TD-style fonts and narration boxes, which will hopefully find their way into the final cut and not just the trailer.Here's the film's official plot synopsis from Sony:
Based on Posy Simmonds' beloved graphic novel of the same name (which was itself inspired by Thomas Hardy's classic Far From the Madding Crowd), this wittily modern take on the romantic English pastorale is a far cry from Hardy's Wessex. Tamara Drewe's present-day English countryside-stocked with pompous writers, rich weekenders, bourgeois bohemians, a horny rock star, and a great many Buff Orpington chickens and Belted Galloway cows-is a much funnier place. When Tamara Drewe sashays back to the bucolic village of her youth, life for the locals is thrown tail over teakettle. Tamara-once an ugly duckling-has been transformed into a devastating beauty (with help from plastic surgery). As infatuations, jealousies, love affairs and career ambitions collide among the inhabitants of the neighboring farmsteads, Tamara sets a contemporary comedy of manners into play using the oldest magic in the book-sex appeal.
