Wuthering Heights is Academy Award®-winning writer-director Andrea Arnold’s third feature following the BAFTA® award winningFish Tank and Cannes Jury Prize winning Red Road, 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… Arnold’s film brings out the powerful emotions at the heart of Brontë’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.

“Arnold’s highly cinematic re-imagining feels fresh and vital, a lean creature highly attuned to the moor’s ecosystem, red in tooth and claw.”-CineVue
