Review

Our Score
Why there was a need to remake the superb Laurence Olivier/Merle Oberon classic adaptation of the Brontë novel is one question. And then why remake it so badly is the other. Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche are poorly directed by Peter Kosminsky in this tepid tale of Heathcliff, the wild child orphan, and Cathy, his lover who has ideas above her station. Binoche struggles with her English while the pair of them fail to raise even the semblance of sexual chemistry. A film that really should never have been made, it'll have you running back to the book to remember just how good it is.

Summary

The head of a Yorkshire family takes in a mysterious boy, who is treated cruelly by the rest of the household but develops a close bond with his foster sister. Over the years to come as they both grow up, their relationship grows more intense, with devastating repercussions for all concerned. Period drama, based on Emily Bronte's novel, starring Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche.
