Venice 2011: Andrea Arnold’s WUTHERING HEIGHTS Clips and Photos

Wuthering Heights

Time to continue with titles that will premiere in competition at the upcoming 68th Venice Film Festival. Next one is Wuthering Heights, a dark tale of passionate and thwarted love, sibling rivalry and revenge wreaked.

Well, not a bad description for a movie which is based on Emily Bronte’s only novel of the same name, that comes from director Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank), who made her feature film directorial debut in 2006 with Red Road.

So, all of you familiar with Bronte’s novel, are now happy to hear an adaptation of the whole thing is actually coming, or what? I mean, I know I am, especially because I miss good old romantic dramas and that’s exactly why I’m here today.

So, I guess now is the perfect time to share some photos and clips from this movie with you. As you see, we have a bit of depressive scenes, but when we have something like this: ‘Kiss me again, but don’t let me see your eyes! I forgive what you have done to me. I love my murderer-but yours! How can I?’ what else can we expect?

Wuthering Heights follows a Yorkshire hill farmer on a visit to Liverpool finds a homeless boy, named Heathcliff, on the streets. He takes him home to live as part of his family on the isolated Yorkshire moors where the boy forges an obsessive relationship with the farmer’s daughter, Catherine.

As the children grow, family members and neighbours are caught up in the family’s bitter games fuelled by overblown egos. Though ostensibly a costume drama, the story lends itself to contemporary themes such as racism and dependency, whilst touching on perennial ones such as jealousy, hatred of the other, love and the family. Set in the wild Yorkshire countryside, the landscape is at once the ideal backdrop and one of the major protagonists of this cruel and passionate story.

Olivia Hetreed is responsible for the screenplay, and Wuthering Heights stars Kaya Scodelario as Catherine Earnshaw, James Howson as Heathcliff, Oliver Milburn as Mr. Linton, Nichola Burley as Isabella Linton, James Northcote as Edgar Linton and Amy Wren as Frances Earnshaw.

The rest of the cast includes Steve Evets, Paul Hilton, Simone Jackson, Jonny Powell, Paul Murphy, Hannah Wilkinson and Matthew Kettlewell.

    I am so happy Natalie Portman nor any other known females actresses are the female lead. A new adaptation has to be fresh and new. The actors look great, I am so excited to this version.
