      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Director Andrea Arnold's gritty, naturalistic re-imagining of the Emily Bronte classic stays true to the book's spirit while utilizing an unconventional approach to explore the romantic yearning at the heart of the story.

      Deborah Ross The Spectator So it loses steam, part of the way through, but worth it for the first portion? Yes, because that is like no other costume drama you have ever seen. Aug 31, 2018 Full Review Brian Tallerico Arnold doesn't merely adapt Bronte's story but retells it in her own style, creating a film that can be frustratingly languid to start but becomes mesmerizing as it progresses. Rated: 3.5/5.0 Nov 30, 2012 Full Review Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune In reality it's a bit of a slog. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 29, 2012 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Arnold creates a radically desolate piece of cinema that presents a challenge to traditionalist audiences. Rated: 3/4 Sep 20, 2022 Full Review Dustin Chang Floating World It never recovers from its breathtakingly gorgeous first half where young Heathcliff and Cathy run around on the misty moor. You just wish it goes on and on like that. Feb 28, 2021 Full Review Jim Ross TAKE ONE Magazine ...a striking adaptation of an Emily Brontë classic, that eschews many of the clichés one might associate with popular views of the source material.

      David M Wake me up when it's finished! So slow, and boring as hell... I fell asleep. To have an African boy playing Heathcliff was just bloody ridiculous in my opinion! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Weighty Connected L One of several film adaptations of Emily Bronte's famous classic novel, this 2011 film by Andrea Arnold is a heartbreaking story of romance happening in a backdrop of prejudice, physical and mental cruelty, betrayal, and misunderstanding, with solid performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Thomas H This is the feminine equivalent to a Sylvester Stallone movie for guys, only SS doesn't need a classic novel to disgrace. Just read the book. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/08/23 Full Review john k It's not good at all, dull and misery atmosphere with the lack of music. A lot of silence Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member So I watched Wuterhing heights for the first time & then I went onto to Wikipedia to read about the original story line. I was expecting to find a similar story line to this film, but that wasn't the case. I'm not sure I understand why this version has changed the original story line to include a black orphan boy who speaks no English and is racially insulted by this adopted brother and others around him. This isn't even a thing in the original story. No mention that Heathcliff was an African orphan, who spoke no English & was racially abused by the families. I think this has completely defected from the original story, so for that I am marking this film as a 3. It was good, it kept my attention but not happy that the original was completely changed to include the topic of racism & a character Heathcliff who didn't speak English and wasn't from England. This has not followed the original at all. Sorry I like stories to be told as they were originally written by the author. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful to look at but not much happened. No soundtrack that I can recall. I'd say it was the most boring drama interspersed with a nature documentary. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
