“Wuthering Heights” sets mood with new U.K. trailer – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights,” an adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic novel, bowled over critics attending the Venice Film Festival, with comparisons made to the moody, patient works of Terrence Malick (high praise, indeed).

The movie came back down to earth a tad in Toronto, where other critics began picking apart the film’s pace and visuals. But Arnold’s drama convinced Oscilloscope to take a chance on the film, meaning U.S. audiences will get to see Arnold’s “Heights” sooner rather than later.

The film will play the BFI London Film Festival later this year, then will open in the U.K. on Nov. 11. Ahead of its European opening, British distributor Artificial Eye released a new trailer with additional footage. We have it below:

Arnold’s adaptation stars James Howson as Heathcliff, an orphan pulled in by an upscale family who falls for his foster sister (Kaya Scodelario). The word on “Heights,” from an awards perspective, is that it won’t be in play for this year’s campaign. Oscilloscope plans to release it in 2012, pulling it out of this year’s race. But I wonder if the film is strong enough to hang around and compete next season?
