-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Wuthering Heights (2011)
The widely acclaimed classic literary work of Emily Brontë, saw multiple adaptations in many different forms throughout the years. Especially both on small and big screens. However, it is in my humble opinion that the definitive adaptation comes from Andrea Arnold's and her 2011 film with the same title. Her version of Wuthering Heights, of course has some changes made so that it is more culturally relevant, which in the end enhances the expirience What really sets it apart from the other iterations, is her abuility to create a fully living, breathing and tangible world of the 19th century South England. You can feel the strong winds blowing up and down the hills. Touch the crusty old paint that is falling off the wall. Sense the heat coming from the crackling fireplace. Andrea Arnold transports the audience to the world both she and Emily Brontë has created to tell the story of love and hardship.
