Andrea Arnold’s highly controversial adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic Gothic novel, which had been in ‘development hell’ for several years, with a variety of different directors and actors attached to the project. Director Arnold has always been uncompromising in her films, from 2006’s Red Road & 2009’s Fish Tank, and with Wuthering Heights she has crafted a remarkable film that’s sure to generate some discussions, particularly with Bronte purists.
Here’s the film’s trailer:
Wuthering Heights is screening on 16 July at 7:30 PM at the Swan Theatre. This film is rated 15.
Tickets are £5 (£4 concessions) through the Swan Theatre box office:
