Marriage. Remind me never to try it.

Tamara Drewe Synopsis

Gemma Arterton plays Tamara, the ultimate modern girl returning to her country home - and her past. Once a shy, ugly teenager, she reinvents herself as a smoldering femme fatale, kicking up a storm of envy, lust and gossip wherever she goes.

Moira Buffini's adaptation from Posy Simmonds' graphic novel and Saturday Guardian strip, Tamara Drewe is a modern-day take on Thomas Hardy's classic, Far From the Madding Crowd.
