Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes embody the brooding passions of Emily Brontë’s immortal tale of love and revenge in this dark, intensely romantic adaptation from director Peter Kosminsky. Raised together on the Yorkshire moors, the free-spirited Cathy (Binoche) and the foundling Heathcliff (Fiennes, in his film debut) seem destined to be together forever. When she grows up to marry another man, the embittered Heathcliff is set on a path of vengeance. Ryuichi Sakamoto’s haunting score pushes the air of romantic yearning to intoxicating heights.
