Patreon Post Unlocked: Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights (1992)


Wuthering Heights was my favorite novel as a teenager because, of course, it fit my angsty, romantic gothic self. I’m still angsty and goth, but now I’m bitter and jaded so now I see the characters and plot for the simplistic archetypes they are, tucked up underneath all that poetry. And since much of what makes Emily Brontë’s novel great is the language, when adapted for screen, all that tends to come thru is the ridiculousness of the plot and characters. Only a couple adaptions touch at some of the poetry, and I find this 1992 one titled Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights pretty good.

    Quite frequently, although I am a Patreon of Frock Flicks and have been for some time, I don’t receive the Patreon link for posts like this one and, of course, this one won’t open for me, Extremely annoying.

    Oh, dear. I REALLY need to see this one again. I have so much to say about this production, but nothing to say re the costumes. So, I’ll only say this: Ralph Fiennes has never been sexier than he was in this movie, and that’s saying something. Like you, Wuthering Heights, was my favorite novel as an angsty teen. It’s still one of my faves. Whatever you do, stay away from the monstrosity that is “Wuthering High.”

    WH is my absolutely favorite book of all time, and I don’t think an adaptation has ever really done it justice. (There’s a lot of daaaaaaaark humor that doesn’t make it onto the screen.) This one was decent, and Janet McTeer is PERFECT as Nelly Dean aka the best character in the whole damn book.
