Editorial Reviews

Andrea Arnold's WUTHERING HEIGHTS is an excitingly fresh and distinct take on the classic novel by Emily Brontë. 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars True adaptation November 27, 2012
Format:DVD
A cinematographic adaptation, not merely a film adaptation, if that makes any sense - not just a filmed reading of excerpts from the book in historic settings. Dialogue is largely replaced by tableaux, to powerful effect, and the wuthering wind becomes a character in its own right, fairly choking us in some scenes. This adaptation chooses to focus on the theme of obsessive love, while almost entirely ignoring the theme of revenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutally Atmospheric January 7, 2013
By Allyssa
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
While it does not follow the book, this adaptation of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights is entirely worthy of the original. Wuthering Heights is one of my favorite novels and this film captures the raw essence of it, which means this film will not appeal to a wide audience. The story is essentially about people who have had harsh lives and who have no qualms about hurting people, even the people they love. It's set in a barren landscape with little to entertain. The film reflects this with little dialogue and the sound of the wind rushing across the moors makes up the film's soundtrack until the entirely appropriate Mumford and Son's "Enemy" comes on with the credits. There is very little, if any, artificial lighting, which leaves much of what happens inside in shadow. Scenes with animal cruelty are also a notable part of the film and while I hate to see a dog hanged by its collar, that's one of the scenes from the book I will never forget and serves to help detract people's typically over-romantic notions of Heathcliff. All in all, this film created an incredible atmosphere for Cathy and Heathcliff's part of the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the depiction we were hoping for. June 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love Kaya Scodelario and thought that her casting as Catherine was spot-on. Unfortunately, she has a total of about 15-20 minutes to work with in this entire film and her counterpart - James Howson - was not really up for the task.

While I do think that the tone of the book was capture by this desolate setting, a few things bothered me immensely and basically ruined the movie.

1. It's been stated before - the children look nothing like their adult selves. I'm not sure why the director thought she could get away with this. Did she think we wouldn't notice? It took me completely out of the story. This seems like such a basic thing to get right.

2. The ending. First off, the Mumford & Sons song. Um. What? Why? We've spent the entire movie in utter silence, paying special attention to make sure that everything is realistic and set to that period and then...Mumford & Sons over a flashback of a fairly disturbing scene in the mud?

Beyond the weird closure, taking out the second half of the book was disappointing. I felt that, as a result, this wasn't really a depiction of Wuthering Heights, but instead a movie inspired by Wuthering Heights.

3. Finally, the animal cruelty. I know it's been brought up before and I could deal with the bunnies and sheep being killed, but the dogs legitimately had me covering my screen. I just don't want to see it and I hope they took special cares to ensure that no dogs were harmed.

Overall, it *did* feel like a student film. The director seemed to care more about creating a film that people wouldn't expect over creating a film that would tell this story accurately and with the text in mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Embracing the Thorn November 16, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This production is a real mixed bag. It is beautifully inspired film-craft in regards to cinematography, location, direction and acting (especially from the younger actor and actress playing Heathcliff and Catherine).

The director Andrea Arnold has lovingly understood and rendered Emily Bronte's masterpiece in a truer sense than I've ever seen previously in film adaptations. Her affinity with the novel is obvious in the extreme devotion to the nuances that other films always seem to miss. Specifically, and most importantly is location. Wuthering heights, Thrushcross Grange, and most especially the moors are such integral parts of this story and so representational that the importance of location cannot be over-estimated. Arnold's shots of the moors put the audience perfectly in the setting. Breathtaking images of the moors leave the viewer able to fully comprehend the isolation the characters would feel in such a desolate landscape. Which is then contrasted to the more populated and cheerful Thruscross Grange. Catherine and Heathcliff's bond is indigenous to the fierce and uncultivated land of the moors. Arnold's adaptation is unparalleled in expressing this deeper understanding of the story.

She does a fine job with Catherine and Heathcliff's younger years. Solomon Glave and Shannon Beer gave heart-wrenching and profound performances, all the more remarkable given their tender ages. Glave's performance was remarkable. I believed in their love on screen, as surely as I did when I read the novel. However, the entire production goes belly up in the last third of film. The replacement of the characters with older actors betrays the powerful beauty and chemistry that was so painstakingly created by Beer and Glave.

ARG! I couldn't even finish this movie. Clearly the writers and directors wanted to make this classic tale more relevant to current prejudices - but, for me it did not work. Read more

like other film adaptations of this puzzling book, it fails to deliver the second catherine; for some reason the second volumes is excluded from the film.

Because the character and cast of Heathcliff in this very adaptation is the most original and true to Bronte's book. I also liked the ruggedness and genuine feel of the set.
