Directed by Andrea Arnold in 2011 based on Emily Brontë's 1846 novel, this period drama recreates the world-famous gothic love story.
The director seems to have taken an assumption that the audience knows the story in advance since the film omits so many important scenes such as Heathcliff's life in America.
The deaths of the characters appear so sudden that I wondered what the heck happened.
Compared to the 1939 film, the opening sequence seems monotonous and disinteresting.

If you have read the book, you will love this! Wuthering Heights is more about cruelty (as this version shows) than passionate love (as most other film adaptations tend to show). Really emphasized the harshness of the environment and of the relationships between the characters. Love ! <3! (if you are looking for a more romantic version, then you should probably look into one of the other film adaptations such as the 2009 version with Tom Hardy)

Only made it about 30 minutes, before giving up on it. Recommend another picking other film adaptations.

I LOVED this version of the movie. It's gritty and sensual...the landscape and the light are almost like characters in the movie. Gorgeous to watch.

This is the one time I have to agree with all the negative reviews. This movie was really awful. A complete waste of time. There really is no story. It was poorly directed, edited, produced and made no sense whatsoever. Since there was little to no dialogue, I ended up fast forwarding the movie to the end.

Terrible movie. It seemed as if all the scenes were shot in the dark. I couldn't understand what the actors were saying. What was the point of this movie anyway? Did not finish watching this.

Awful. Horrible. Totally missed the point of the love story. As others have commented, had to put subtitles on because it sounded like everyone had marbles in their mouths plus the background noises were overdone. Haven't read the book & don't think I will.
