Based on the popular U.K. comic strip set in a quaint English village (and considered a modern reworking of Thomas Hardy's 19th century novel "Far from the Madding Crowd"), "Tamara Drewe" recounts the romantic adventures of a young journalist who returns back home after years away to sell the house she inherited from her late mother. Gemma Arterton's flinty, flirty, and slightly filthy performance as a sexual interloper among the rural rubes she left behind as an ugly-duckling teenager is nothing short of electrifying. The former Bond girl from "Quantum of Solace," who also appeared in this year's geeky fanboy films "Clash of the Titans" and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," Arterton delivers a first-rate and fully fleshed-out portrayal here, far away from the green screens and spy gimmicks that may have overshadowed her acting chops in the past.
