British director Andrea Arnold (Film Tank) does a fresh take on Emily Brontë’s classic novel, Wuthering Heights, which follows Heathcliff (in Arnold’s version, a black boy played by James Howson), who is taken in by a Yorkshire farmer, Earnshaw. Living in Earnshaw’s home on the windswept moors, Heathcliff develops a passionate relationship with the farmer’s teenage daughter, Cathy (Kaya Scodelario), inspiring the envy and mistrust of his son, Hindley (Lee Shaw). When Earnshaw passes away, the now-grown characters must finally confront the intense feelings and rivalries that have built up throughout their years together.

    This trailer has proven all of my doubts about this adaption wrong! The cinematography is stunning, and matches the tone of the book perfectly. A co-worker at Dish also pointed out that the actors look to be the closest in age to the characters that they are portraying. To prepare for this premiere, I have been watching the other versions of this story with Blockbuster @Home. With my busy schedule, I like that it is so easy to order the DVDs by mail, or exchange them in the store if I can’t wait. In comparison to the adaption’s I have watched so far, this version stands out the most. I can’t wait to decide for myself whether or not the bold artistic choices worked for the better, or worse.
