Hardy heroine faces injustice with head high in ‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’

TESS OF THE D’URBERVILLES. Sunday night at 9, WNET/Ch.13

PBS’ “Masterpiece Theater” kicked off 2008 with a Jane Austen festival.

It kicks off 2009 with a new two-night, four-hour miniseries of Thomas Hardy’s “Tess of the d’Urbervilles,” which visually seems eerily similar to Austen. Yet it pokes into a far darker, more debilitating side of life for even the most buoyant and resilient of women in the 19th century.

What makes Tess Durbeyfield’s life difficult, happily, makes the drama rich for “Masterpiece” fans. The fact many will be familiar with the story makes this latest interpretation no less engrossing.

Gemma Arterton, most recently seen with a far different attitude as the latest Bond Girl, plays Tess traditionally and well. Read More

Gemma Arterton graduated from St Trinian’s to star as Tess of the d’Urbervilles. Now she’s playing opposite Daniel Craig in the new Bond film. Is this the start of global domination for the girl from Gravesend?

The moment Gemma Arterton heard she’d be the new Bond girl is ingrained on her mind for ever. She was on a boat, just off the coast of Gibraltar, filming the comedy Three and Out with Mackenzie Crook. Dressed in full scuba-diving gear – what else would a prospective Bond girl be wearing? – Arterton answered her mobile phone to her agent, who immediately began humming the James Bond theme down the line; the role of Agent Fields in the 22nd 007 film, Quantum of Solace, was hers. So moved was Crook, he shed a tear for his co-star and uttered, “This is such a big moment in your life.” Read More
