I totally agree with everything RP has said. The film was too short and the characters, especially Mr Boldwood and Sergeant Troy failed to l live up to expectation. I disagree with the Gabriel Oak character. To me he was the best person in the film. The main thing missing was any passion. In the 1967 film Bathsheba show real pain when Troy kisses his dead girlfriend. This was totally missing from the 2015 version. It was missing again in the shooting of Troy; both from Cary Mulligan and Michael Sheen.
