An epic love story that spans childhood well into the young adult years, the film follows Heathcliff (Solomon Glave, then James Howson), 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 (Shannon Beer, then Kaya Scodelario), 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. Earthy, sensual deconstruction of the Emily Bronte classic, from director Andrea Arnold ("Fish Tank"), avoids a conventional approach to period drama, but remains faithful to the characters of Heathcliff and Cathy. Strikingly photographed, this is a film whose characters inhabit an evocatively harsh and forbidding landscape of mud and mist.
