Summary, etc.:
Andrea Arnold's WUTHERING HEIGHTS is an excitingly fresh and distinct take on the classic novel by Emily Bront©±.. 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, Catherine, 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.. Arnold's film is a beautiful and evocative visual masterpiece that brings out the powerful emotions at the heart of Bront©±'s classic novel, resulting in a viscerally affecting love story. It is a sweepingly 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.. Winner of Outstanding Technical Contribution and nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. "Arnold has been successful in reimagining the story's archetypal emotions in the story, bringing it closer to its passionate elements." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
