Wuthering Heights

Sunday, November 10, 2019 - 14:00

Dir. Peter Kominsky (UK 1992, 106mins 12)


Emily Bronte's novel has seen many adaptions - this one by Anne Devlin takes on the whole novel and deserves a reassessment. The great Juliette Binoche, the debut of Ralph Fiennes, wonderful music from Ryuichi Sakamoto and uncredited narration by Sinead O'Connor produce a very good film - but will it satisfy lovers of the novel?


Following the film, a discussion led by academic and award-winning novelist Michael Stewart creator of the Brontë Stones project, four monumental stones sited between the Brontë's birthplace in Thornton, Bradford and Haworth parsonage, inscribed with poems by Kate Bush, Carol Ann Duffy and Jeannette Winterson. Currently writing a book about the landscapes that inspired the Brontës.


Also participating, John Wheatley, director of forthcoming production of a play of the book at Southgate Theatre.


A great opportunity for book-clubs or anyone who loves Emily Brontë's novel.
