Travelling the dirt roads of Wessex in search of work, Michael Henchard (Ciaran Hinds) a farm worker, auctions his wife Susan (Juliet Aubrey) and baby daughter in a moment of drunken madness at a country fair. Years later, Susan and her daughter Elizabeth-Jane (Jodhi May) return, seeking Michael in Casterbridge where he has become a rich and respected member of Wessex society.

Great film but the DVD quality is really poor - The Mayor of Casterbridge review by AD

Spoiler Alert

I'm going to focus on the quality of the DVD.

Yes, I tried another DVD which played perfectly. before you ask.

The image is really lo-res, so: fuzzy. The colours muted. The contrast is abysmal, a shadow on a face looks like a massive purple bruise for instance.

Was I unlucky or what? I don't know. I'm still waiting for CP to help me out here.
