This version of WH is like none you've seen before. But if you've read the book--closely--then this cinematic view will more closely match Emily Bronte's worldview. It is intriguing.
But, I warn you--this is a slowly paced film. The camera lingers on scenes and glances so long that you often have to remind yourself where you are in the story. I suggest extreme caffeination or indulging in some other stimulant before viewing this film if you have a tendency to nod off in slow movies, as I do.
My only other complaint was the depiction of Heathcliff. While I applaud casting James Howson, a man of color, as Heathcliff (which existing scholarship has long agreed on, that Heathcliff was probably of mixed race), I don't think Howson ever achieves the gravitas of Bronte's monstrous character.
In any case, you will enjoy this film.

As close to the novel as anyone's come yet. Beautiful direction that makes the Yorkshire moors come alive, helping portray Bronte's key theme. It's dark and conflicted, but so is the novel, something many people overlook. Not perfect, but very much worth seeing.

IMO this is probably one of the worst movies I've seen!! I will give the disclaimer that I wasn't a huge fan of the book, however this movie was still bad. The people who made this film took it to a very dark and icky place. I just really don't remember a lot of the twisted sadistic aspects they put in there. Maybe I missed it in the book which is possible it's been a long time. However my biggest issue with the movie was the actual filming. It's enough to give you motion sickness, I had to close my eyes a number of times in the movie to keep from getting sick. Oh and what was up with the dogs? Seriously the filming went like this nature, people staring at each other, dogs, beetle, wind, dogs, mud, people say a few words and stare, dogs, grass, mud, dogs, wind dogs. Super weird and just to me a bad movie!! Even my friend who likes the story looked at me and was like I'm so sorry for asking you to come see this that was the most horrible thing I've ever seen!!!

This movie is, to sum it up, disturbing. It started off looking promising, but developed into a full blown crap-fest. Half of the movie is wind sounds and rain, and they killed dogs in the movie. There is only half of the book in the movie, the filming is terrible, there is barely any dialogue, and the acting is bad. It'll leave you feeling disturbed and confused; don't waste 9 bucks on this movie
