This review is from: Wuthering Heights (2009) [DVD] (DVD)
A beautiful adaptation! I'm obsessed with the book and have seen several adaptations and like other fans I too am sometimes frustrated by the changes the adaptations make, however the changes in this one work very well. The changes to the story do not change the characters, the emotions involved, but it does give you some fresh insight into the possible motives behind their actions. The largest is the idea that Cathy turned away from Heathcliff less because of her own vanities and more because of Heathcliff's darkness. This is something that can be assumed from the book, except for the fact that Nelly Dean as the narrator feels that Cathy was simply following her own vanities.
I really believe any fan of this perfect book can appreciate this movie, and newcomers will love it as well. I also have to add that Tom Hardy is incredible as Heathcliff! Certainly the best I've seen...and not too hard on the eyes either.
