Wuthering Heights (129 mins)
Emily Brontë's wild, dark romance is gutsily adapted by Oscar-winner Andrea Arnold in a film that gives full force to the novel's passion and brutality. Robbie Ryan's exquisite HD cinematography engulfs the viewer in the harsh beauty of the moors. With Skins' Kaya Scodelario and James Howson, the first black actor to play Heathcliff, Brontë's 'dark-skinned gypsy', on screen.
