Editorial Reviews

The fiery romance of Heathcliff and Cathy reignites in this thrilling new adaptation of Emily Bronte's classic love story. Set against the stark beauty of the English moor, the mysterious gypsy boy Heathcliff, adopted by the Earnshaw family, discovers his soul mate in his stepsister Cathy. But as a man unable to have the love of his life, he seeks vengeance against anyone who comes between them. In one of the greatest romances of all time, this adaptation stars Tom Hardy (The Virgin Queen, Oliver Twist) as Heathcliff, and newcomer Charlotte Riley as the heroine Cathy. Bonus DVD features include: Behind-the-Scenes footage; access to the MASTERPIECE Web site; scene selection; and closed captions.

Clark Douglas, DVD Verdict --While I was initially disappointed to discover this Wuthering Heights wouldn't be as strikingly inventive as the main title promised, I was pleased to discover an exceptional adaptation that holds up pretty well in contrast to the previous versions (most prominently, a 1939 version with Laurence Olivier, a 1970 take with Timothy Dalton, and a 1992 effort with Ralph Fiennes). The source material can be rather tricky to deal with, as it offers an awkward framing structure (one that some versions throw out entirely) and two rather unsympathetic lead characters. While Giedroyc stumbles on occasion in attempting to deal with some of these challenges, most of what he offers is smart and involving.

One of the key virtues of this Wuthering Heights is that it attempts to offer both characters some form of empathy while also fully acknowledging that they're both basically self-absorbed jerks. To be sure, circumstances do push Heathcliffe and Cathy apart to a certain extent, but their real problems are rooted in their unwillingness to compromise their pride and/or social standing. They are incapable of sacrificing enough to earn mutual happiness, and as a way of responding they choose to make everyone in their lives miserable. They could easily be impossible to spend time with, but the performances and direction ensure that we at least understand what drives these people and even feel for them at times.

Speaking of which, the real reason to see this Wuthering Heights is the riveting performance of Tom Hardy as the troubled Heathcliffe. Hardy's solid early on as the conflicted young man in love with his step-sister, but absolutely electrifying as the calculating, embittered self-made man plotting revenge on his long-time enemies.

of all the (english speaking) "Wuthering Heights" filmed, this is far the most superior: apparently the authenticity of the art direction created the environment and the two young actors (now married) developed the sense of passion ... their youth and their love/rage depicted the hormonal imbalance of the young when in love. Tom Hardy's performance is noteworthy and underlines his ability and range of characters, he was amazing to watch here and then in Bronson, The Warrior ... etc.

This adaptation of Wuthering Heights is great. Tom Hardy does an excellent job portraying the emotionally conflicted Heathcliff in a way that I feel few actors could make it believable. It is hard making Emily Bronte's complex characters real on the screen and this adaptation does an excellent job and I would definitely recommend it!

This is my favorite version of Wuthering Heights. Tom Hardy is excellent as Heathcliff, and Charlotte Riley is an unforgettable Cathy. The two of them together are magic. "How can I live without my life?"
Wuthering Heights is Emily Jane Bronte's masterpiece. Peter Bowker did a great job on the screenplay, although he took some liberties that slightly change Cathy's character from the one Emily Bronte intended.
Be sure to get this Blu-ray Original UK Version (see the lower left corner of the Blu-ray case). The DVD edition has been cut and is missing the important opening scene where Cathy says to Heathcliff, "Let me in." You'll know it when you see it. Another option is to stream it. Amazon offers the uncut UK version at no additional charge if you have Amazon Prime (I also recommend Amazon Fire TV).
For those of you who loved reading Wuthering Heights, I also recommend "The Complete Poems of Emily Jane Bronte" edited by C.W. Hatfield. Emily Bronte felt her poems were so personal that she didn't want anyone to read them, and was aghast when Charlotte Bronte found and read them. Fortunately for all of us, Charlotte and her other sister Anne, encouraged her to have Emily's, Charlotte's, and Anne's poems published as "Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell". The Bronte sisters went on to write and publish their masterpieces the following year: "Wuthering Heights" (Emily Jane), "Jane Eyre" (Charlotte), and "Agnes Grey" (Anne) (I personally prefer "The Tenant of Windfell Hall" to "Agnes Grey").
