Terrible! I wish I hadn't wasted my time. The violence against man and animal was near constant and a bore.

Washington Post
Her approach to the material is fresh, considering her focus on the messy, muddy landscape as a metaphor for the story's unbridled relationships. But with so much attention paid to mood and imagery, emotions seem to get lost in the wind. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
The grunts and howls seem every bit as mannered as the florid diction of Olivier and Oberon, perhaps even more so. Their artifice, like Brontë's own, was overt, whereas Ms. Arnold strives to disguise hers in the trappings of authenticity. And as a result, the impact - the grandeur, the art - of Wuthering Heights is diminished. Full Review

This may test your patience, it's not for everyone, it's a stretch to call this "entertainment" and so on. As far as Heathcliff being black – well, deal with it. Arnold's simply right about that one, and it's Laurence Olivier and Ralph Fiennes and all those costume-drama versions of the story that are wrong. Full Review

It's just that there isn't enough story - the book shouldn't be required reading for the film to make sense. Full Review

The new Wuthering Heightsis all gloomy moors and muck, but not much convincing passion. Full Review
