Like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is one of those books that keeps getting made into movies. A new film version has come out every decade since 1939 when the first movie version of the book was made. The 2011 version is from writer/director Andrea Arnold. Kaya Scodelario is the titular Catherine Earnshaw and her lover, Heathcliff is played by James Howson.
If you don’t know the story of Bronte’s novel the basic plot is this: A poor young English boy named Heathcliff is taken in by the wealthy Earnshaw family where he develops an intense relationship with his young foster sister, Catherine.
Wuthering Heights doesn’t have a U.S. release date but it will be out on November 11th, 2011.
