Tamara Drewe is based on the graphic novel by Posy Simmons, which was itself inspired by Thomas Hardy’s classic Far From the Madding Crowd. When Tamara Drewe (Gemma Arterton) 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.
