Wuthering Heights // Andrea Arnold

Bronte’s classic gets yanked into the next century with a brooding new portrayal by director Andrea Arnold. Rendered here, the moors come alive, almost tangibly harsh under Arnold’s penetrative gaze. The director has a knack for discovering fresh talent—her “Fish Tank” gave actor Michael Fassbender his breakthrough role—and we hope to see a lot more of Solomon Glave and James Howson, the actors who play Heathcliff as a lost boy, and later as a tortured young man.

See this one in a theater! Wuthering Heights is currently playing at New York’s Film Forum before heading to LA and Seattle.
