“The film gave me something I never expect to get from any classic literary adaptation: the shock of the new.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
“Do not miss this for the world." – Jesse Hawthorne, San Francisco Bay Guardian
"It's an intense, uncompromising take that restores some of the shock that made Wuthering Heights so notable when it first appeared." - Keith Phipps, Onion AV Club
Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights is an excitingly fresh and distinct take on the classic novel by Emily Brontë, told in a bracingly modern way by one of contemporary cinema’s most gifted and unique filmmakers.
An epic love story that spans childhood well into the young adult years, the film follows Heathcliff, a boy taken in by a benevolent Yorkshire farmer, Earnshaw. Living in Earnshaw’s home, Heathcliff develops a passionate relationship with the farmer’s teenage daughter, Cathy, inspiring the envy and mistrust of his son, Hindley. When Earnshaw passes away, the now-grown characters must finally confront the intense feelings and rivalries that have built up throughout their years together.
