Part of our 'Toxic Love' theme of the month on Curzon12.
Eschewing none of the style that made her early work ('Red Road', 'Fish Tank') so unique, Andrea Arnold's 'Wuthering Heights' captures the spirit of life on the Yorkshire moors and the danger of an illicit romance, whilst offering a ravishingly beautiful take on a familiar story.
One of the most radical adaptations of Emily Brontë's novel, beautifully shot by Robbie Ryan who makes the most of the harsh climate and misty landscape.
Nominated for the Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival 2011
★★★★ "Andrea Arnold's adaptation of the Emily Brontë classic strips away all the period-drama cliches to create a passionate, elemental drama" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
★★★★★ "It feels, in the best way possible, totally alien" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
