Kaya Scodelario as Cathy and James Howson as Heathcliff lead an impressive British cast in this timeless story of two of the most memorable lovers in literature. This raw and gritty version of Emily Bronte's classic novel is ruthlessly brought down to its essential roots, and presents us with an adaptation that's startlingly original and completely unforgettable.
Wuthering Heights destroyed

This is the worst production of Wuthering Heights I have ever seen. The director makes use of a hand held camera with the associated shake and loss of focus and only manages to utilise 2/3 of the screen. Bronte's superb novel is reduced to a series of scences largely shot in darkness with Heathcliffe, devoid of meaningful lines, lurking in hedges. The novel provides excellent character and relationship development all of which is lost by the director who substitutes modern expletives in the most extraordinary places and 3 scenes of dogs being hung.The only aspect which has merit is the excellent landscape metaphor. Avoid.
