SYNOPSIS

In this austere adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s 1895 novel JUDE THE OBSCURE, an intelligent young British man falls prey to romance, oppressive social conventions, and unspeakable tragedy in his unsanctioned relationship with his cousin. JUDE is a tragic romance, well acted by Kate Winslet (TITANIC), Rachel Griffiths (HILARY AND JACKIE), and Christopher Eccleston (ELIZABETH) and wonderfully directed by Michael Winterbottom (WELCOME TO SARAJEVO).
