Plot & Details
'Wuthering' Heights is a fresh and radically distinct take on Emily Bronte's classic novel from one of contemporary cinema's most unique voices, British filmmaker Andrea Arnold. An epic love story spanning childhood well into the young adult years, the film follows Heathcliff (in Arnold's version, a black boy), who is taken in by a Yorkshire farmer, Earnshaw. Living in Earnshaw's home on the windswept moors, 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.
