    Excellent adaptation of Bronte's doomed love story

    Yes, I have seen several versions of Wuthering Heights, the 1939 version holding a special place in my heart. But this adaptation caught me from the opening credits and did not let go long after it ended. This is not your grandma's Wuthering Heights, let's put it that way. It's dark, deadly, and haunting. Much credit for the success of this version goes to Tom Hardy as Heathcliff. Hardy's range as an actor gives new depth to Bronte's anti-hero. You see what a great man he could have become if not for Hindley's torturous treatment of him and Cathy's snobbish refusals. The scenes with Heathcliff and Cathy as young lovers are beautiful and true -- the chemistry between these two actors is scorching. But once Heathcliff turns down the road of cruelty and revenge, it's a slippery slope. Hardy's deep voice and stealth mannerisms give you the impression of a tiger waiting to strike. What I really liked in this version was Charlotte Riley's portrayal of Cathy. She isn't a tantrum-throwing caricature. She gives Cathy a likable earthiness that we can identify with even as she makes dreadful choices. The score, the cinematography, the secondary characters, everything is perfect. It may not be for everyone, but this adaptation is one that does the novel justice.

    Wonderful

    To me, this was better then the book.
    Cathy was much more likable and relatable.

    I really didn't like that the book version was told from Nelly's perspective; she didn't like Cathy and always had her own comments to add.
    And a lot of the things that were said by Nelly to Heathcliff were said by Cathy here, which I thought was very smart, it works better, Nelly shouldn't have had any place in their romance.

    Entertaining Enough

    I collect Wuthering Heights movies. I love the moorland and scenery, the old architecture, and the costumes of such films. This one from Masterpiece does a good job in all of those areas. Tom Hardy does not make for a very attractive nor compelling Heathcliffe unfortunately. Actually, none of the characters in this particular movie are very strong. Other versions have a much stronger Cathy character. This movie is in two segments and the story-line drags on a bit so that I stopped it at the intermission for continued viewing on another day. Also, the story picks up with a twist unlike other versions and the book so that it is just a wee bit confusing. Because I collect Wuthering Heights movies, I'm glad to see another version to add to my collection but this is defintely not one of my favorites.
