Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights gets a quiet and evocative trailer

09.20.2011

Based on the classic 19th century Emily Brontë novel, WUTHERING HEIGHTS comes newly adapted from filmmaker Andrea Arnold, the follow-up to her impressive Michael Fassbender-starring drama FISH TANK back in 2009.

Today, we get a look at the first trailer for the project, which just recently came out of the Toronto International Film Festival with a distribution deal from Oscilloscope. We'll likely be seeing this one Stateside sometime next year. Until then, dig the calm and almost haunting visuals on display.

WUTHERING HEIGHTS - starring James Howson, Kaya Scodelario, Steve Evets, and Nichola Burley - opens November 11th in the UK.

Synopsis: In a remote farmhouse on Yorkshire’s nineteenth-century moors, Mr. Earnshaw brings home a wary biracial boy, whom he names Heathcliff. Adopted into the family under Christian values, Heathcliff’s new presence is met with mixed feelings. Hindley, Earnshaw’s teenaged son, treats him with contempt, while Catherine, Hindley’s younger sister, embraces the outsider with curious warmth. An intense relationship begins to form between Heathcliff and Catherine as they play on the moor. Their pleasant days are brought to an abrupt end, however, with Mr. Earnshaw’s death. Hindley takes control of the farm and drives Heathcliff away. Edgar, the son of a wealthy neighbouring family, courts Catherine in marriage. Torn between love and reason, Catherine’s decision sets the three of them on a tragic course.

Extra Tidbit: WUTHERING HEIGHTS was shot in the uncommon 1.37:1 (Academy Ratio), which is why the trailer looks the way it does.

Great movie

Saw it at TIFF. It's gorgeous and grand in the best cinematic sense. Has some pacing issues toward the end but overall, really great. Makes me want to read the book for comparison.

It's shot in 1:33:1 ratio, just like the trailer shows.

It'sme, your Cathy, I've come home now.

Ballsy to have Heathcliff black. I approve. He's"dark-skinned" in the novel, after all, though probably more mediterranean or romany.

Strange to be using the academy ratio on a new film, or is that just the trailer?

Fish Tank was great in my opinion, so I'm all over this.
