Andrea Arnold's WUTHERING HEIGHTS is a fresh and distinct take on the classic novel by Emily Bronte. An epic love story that spans childhood into adulthood, the film follows Heathcliff, an outsider taken in and given a home by a benevolent Yorkshire farmer, Earnshaw. Heathcliff develops a passionate relationship with the farmer's teenage daughter, Catherine, inspiring the envy and mistrust of his rough-hewn son, Hindley. Years later, when Earnshaw dies, the young adults must finally confront the intense feelings and destructive rivalries that have developed between them. Arnold's film is a beautiful and bold masterpiece that brings out the powerful emotions of Bronte's timeless love story. It is a sweeping, old-fashioned tale of family, class, and romance told in a bracingly modern way by one of contemporary cinema's most gifted and unique filmmakers.
