Based on a popular graphic novel, Tamara Drewe is a colorful comedy of manners that chronicles a young woman’s sexual misadventures at a bucolic writers’ retreat in England.

Posy Simmonds’ original comic was also serialized in The Guardian, with a story inspired by Thomas Hardy’s novel Far From the Madding Crowd. The big-screen version is directed by Stephen Frears, maker of modern indie classics such as Prick Up Your Ears, High Fidelity, and The Queen.
