The story of Heathcliff, an orphaned outsider found on the streets of Liverpool and given a home by a benevolent farmer, Mr. Earnshaw. Heathcliff develops a passionate romantic relationship with the farmer's teenage daughter, Catherine, inspiring the distrust and envy of her volatile brother, Hindley. Years later, when the elder Earnshaw dies, Heathcliff, Catherine, and Hindley, now adults, must at long last confront the intense feelings and destructive rivalries which have developed between them.

Wuthering Heights Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The first thing you'll probably notice about Wuthering Heights is the decision—somewhat unusual nowadays—to frame the picture in the old Academy ratio of 1.33:1, which results in black bars on the sides of a widescreen 16:9 television. (Unlike the U.K. Blu-ray release, Oscilloscope's version is also slightly windowboxed, with black bars on the top and bottom as well, perhaps to prevent overscan issues.) In an interview with indiewire.com, Arnold says she prefers this ratio "because my films are mostly about one person. I'm following that one person and I'm keen on that one person. It's a very respectful and beautiful frame for one person. It gives them a lot of space." This makes sense, and it works well for Wuthering Heights, even if—or, especially because, in another sense—the gorgeous landscapes call out for something closer to 2.35:1 Cinemascope.

The plus side of 1.33:1, from a more technical standpoint, is that no cropping of the top and bottom of the frame is needed, allowing the full negative to be used. This can result in a slight increase in clarity, and the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is certainly sharp, with a consistently strong level of high definition detail in faces, wooly clothing textures, and the heather and moss that covers the moors. As for color, the film's grading might best be described as beautifully dreary—slightly desaturated and with a preponderance for dingy browns and greens and grays. Contrast is generally excellent, although some of the darker interiors can be a bit intense, shadow-wise. (You might not want to watch this one during the daytime if you have a screen prone to glare.) Shot on 35mm, the image retains its natural grain structure here, and besides some brief shimmering on blades of grass and other extremely fine patterns, I didn't notice any picture quality problems whatsoever. A striking transfer, overall.


Wuthering Heights Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The other thing that separates Wuthering Heights from the usual frock drama aesthetic is that there's no score here to help us understand how to feel about any given scene. Instead, Arnold relies strictly on the natural sounds of her characters' environment. Thankfully, the sound design— encoded in a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track—is excellent from start to finish, with immersive ambience filling in the sometimes long gaps between moments of conversation. Rain pours heavily and thunder rumbles. Wind whips across the moors, rustling tall grass. A twig raps on a windowpane. Horses gallop and sheep bleat. The house creaks in the silence of the night. It's all crisp and lifelike, with clean highs and adequate low-end where necessary. Dialogue is easy to understand too. The only instance of non-diegetic sound in the film—and this seems like a rare stylistic misstep on Arnold's part—is a too-obvious Mumford & Sons song that plays over the final scene and end credits. The disc also includes an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo fold-down mix and optional English SDH subtitles that appear in large, easy-to-read white lettering.
