New Wuthering Heights Pictures
First look at Cathy

30 September 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

Some adaptations of classic literary go for sumptuous decor and costume, emphasising the general gorgeousness of the houses, the skirts and the bonnets of yesteryear, and involve Judi Dench in some capacity. Then there's Andrea Arnolds' Wuthering Heights, which keeps its gaze firmly on the skies and hills, throws on whatever clothes come to hand and doesn't feature anyone you'll recognise.

The famously brooding Heathcliff is played by James Howson (as an adult) and Solomon Glave (as the younger version), with Cathy played by Kaya Scodelario (as an adult) and Shannon Beer. Cast after open auditions, they're closer in ages to the characters in the novel than any cast before them. This is a world-first look at the new Cathy, by the by.

Wuthering Heights is out in the UK on November 11, and will be showing at the London Film Festival before that.

Heathcliff? Black? I've only just got over Kingpin and the gate bloke in Thor and now they drop this bombshell? Whatever next, Superman directed by a gay? Hell in a handcart, etc. More

Love this film
Saw this in Toronto and just loved it. Andrea Arnold makes this real and knowing Yorkshire - yeh, its pretty authentic ( although I wasn't around 150 years ago). Its a very raw film and one that has really stayed with me. Loved the very natural leads but esp like Nichola Burley as Isabella (Heathcliffe's revenge on Cathy and the Lintons) and the bewildered Edgar (James Northcote) as they are as much if not more the victims in the book/fim. Thought this was as beautifully caught as the young Cat More

Heathcliff is described as dark-skinned in the book. It's only decades of adaptations that have fixed people's image of him in their minds. Happens with all the classics. More

Thats exactly how i always pictured Heathcliff looking, A black guy with an Afro and designer stubble. Just like Emily Bronte described him. Effy out of skins is well cast though. More
