I'M A LITTLE behind on my Thomas Hardy, so I didn't know that the heroine in "Far From the Madding Crowd" is named Bathsheba Everdene. Thus, I did not realize that she is surely the inspiration for Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games," also a resourceful country girl with multiple suitors. And can there be any doubt that Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins - who calls her bread-baking character Peeta - also borrows Hardy's affinity for overripe names? In "Far From the Madding Crowd," Ms. Everdene (Carey Mulligan)

NICOLAS WINDING REFN won the best-director award at Cannes for his new movie, "Drive," and should probably win another award for not saying "I told you so. " Although the movie was a big hit at the festival, it wasn't a hit among everybody at the studio that bankrolled it. "I was told, after this movie was completed, by certain people, 'Great, you made this little singular movie, as they would say, but just so you know, this will not make...

Do not mistake The Greatest for a movie about Muhammad Ali. And do not think its ambitious title indicates its overall quality. Distinguished by a gripping pre-titles sequence and a remarkably nuanced performance by Pierce Brosnan (who executive-produced), The Greatest is a group portrait in grief, inconsistently told. The tone of writer/director Shana Feste wavers wildly from deeply felt empathy with the mourners to melodramatic exploitation of them. Not only are the plot holes so big you can drive a truck through them, Feste literally drives a truck through them.

No one does disappointment, aimlessness, sorrow and despair like Chekhov. And hardly anyone does Chekhov convincingly on stage - making us recognize ourselves in those impossible tragicomic characters. This magnificent production of The Seagull, transferred from London to Broadway, gets it absolutely and thrillingly right. Early in Act 1, young actress to young playwright: "But there's not much action, is there? It's just a lot of speeches. And I think you always have to have love in a play . . .. " Chekhov's actress has just about defined Chekhovian drama.

Disarming and unexpectedly poignant, An Education contrasts the knowledge learned inx school with that learned from life. The pupil in question is Jenny, a 16-year-old honors student circa 1961 at a girls' prep school in Twickenham, a middle-class London suburb, who is destined for Oxford. One rainy afternoon, a stranger named David offers to give her a ride home in his shiny sports car. After Jenny is introduced to material pleasures, Oxford looks less like a destination than a dead end. As played by the criminally adorable Carey Mulligan - a winsome actress with Audrey Hepburn eyes, Jean Simmons dimples, an Ellen Page mouth, and her own unforced mirth - Jenny is a book-smart girl hungering for life lessons.

If you take "Ordinary People," add "Juno," and subtract most of the laughs, you'll be conceptually close to "The Greatest. " Carey Mulligan stars as a pregnant teen who ingratiates herself with the teen father's wealthy family after he's killed in an auto accident. The family, in the hands of writer-director Shana Feste, becomes a suspiciously tidy study in various methods of grieving. The head of the household (Pierce Brosnan) keeps his feelings at bay, while his wife (Susan Sarandon)

Wives and mothers beaten by police on Parliament Square. Seamstresses and shop workers carted off to jail. Women, wealthy and working-class alike, condemned by the government and made mockery of in the press for simply insisting they deserved the right to vote. "These things all really did happen," Carey Mulligan is saying, as though, even now, a century after the events depicted in Suffragette , she senses there still are disbelievers out there. Set in London in the years before World War I, Suffragette - playing now at the Ritz Five - follows Mulligan's Maud Watts, a laundry worker, a wife, a mother, who experiences a political awakening and becomes part of a group of female activists fighting, quite literally, for the chance to cast a vote.

Is Carey Mulligan single-handedly reliving the story of the women's movement in the U.K.? In Far from the Madding Crowd , released this spring, the actress was Bathsheba Everdene, Thomas Hardy's headstrong Victorian. She inherits a farm, runs it with sweat and savvy, and goes in pursuit of the independent life - a daunting task given that men are in control, and three of them come courting. Jump ahead about 40 years, and Mulligan is Maud Watts, a Londoner who toils long hours at a giant laundry, keeps her head down, and accedes to the wishes of her piggish boss, even if it means submitting to his molestations - something he has been doing since she began working there, still practically a child.

WROTE THE poet: "Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, and waste its sweetness on the desert air. " We meet one of these latent bloomers in "Inside Llewyn Davis," though his particular fragrance derives from too many clubs, too few showers. Llewyn (Oscar Isaac) is an itinerant folksinger who crashes on couches, bums cigarettes and money and meals, and repays all of this with indifference, anger, sarcasm. You wonder why people put up with him. Until he picks up a guitar and sings.

Bee Gees brother Robin Gibb has shaken off his night fever and is stayin' alive. According to the BBC, Gibb's doctor at the London Clinic, Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam, said the longtime pop star was conscious, lucid and talking with his loved ones. Gibb, who is amazingly only 62 considering the Bee Gees had hits in the 1960s, had been in a coma for 12 days. Dr. T. said that Gibb was tired but that "it is testament to [his] extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds to get where he is now. " Gibb had been battling colon and liver cancer, which was thought to be in remission, when he got pneumonia because of his weakened immune system.

WITH "SHAME," Michael Fassbender continues to, uh, flesh out one of the great calender-year acting feats in recent history. When has an actor ever been so good in so many different roles? He was an impeccable Rochester in "Jane Eyre," and somehow managed to look respectable in "X-Men Origins" wearing his Magneto helmet, a piece of headgear that defeated even the great Ian McKellen. And we've yet to see him as Carl Jung in "A Dangerous Method. " Now comes "Shame," an NC-17 movie starring Fassbender as Brandon, a man with a compulsive need to consume pornography and pursue anonymous sexual encounters.
