Wuthering Heights

Synopsis: [PART I] Braving her father Edgar Linton's warning not to cross the estate border, young Catherine discovers her charming, but sickly cousin and the manly Hareton are the heartlessly scorned and abused sons of wealthy Heatcliff on the Earnshaw estate. This launches a flashback how Heathcliff was raised as Cathy's best friend by her kind father, Mr. Earnshaw. After his death, the son and heir returns from boarding school, married, and reduces Heathcliff to the rank of stable boy, enduring constant abuse in order to remain with Cathy. After an accidental meeting with elegant gentleman Edgar Linton, she falls in love. To Hindley's delight, this drives Heathcliff away. [PART II] Three years later, Heathcliff returns wealthy enough to buy the estate, a day after Cathy married Edgar. He takes revenge, which instead of satisfaction brings misery to all. After Cathy and later Edgar's death, his scorn includes the next generation, which nevertheless finds each-other striving for nobler values.

Cathy, this is Heathcliff.

Your new brother,

I was cursed the moment

I laid eyes on you.


We cannot escape each other.


I would die a thousand deaths

if she were waiting for me!

I'm as trapped as you are.

I cannot live without my soul.

Oh, Cathy!

And we will wander these

moors for all eternity.

Wuthering Heights

From de Novel By Emily Bont

Screenplay by Peter Bowker

Come in, Catherine!

Come on in!

Come here!

Don't torture me! End it.

End it!

Let me in!

Let me in!

Let me in!

I will not be living here, then?

Your father is eager to

have you live with him.

Is it a long journey, Uncle?


- Catherine, my love.

- He's gone, Nelly.

My cousin is gone.

How am I to love my

father if I don't know him?

All children love their parents.

Is Wuthering Heights as pleasant

a place as Thrushcross Grange?

It is not so buried in trees

and it is not quite so large.

But... You can see the

country beautifully all around.

Be quiet now. No more questions.

You are already looking so pale.

Ah, you've brought it, have you?

I feared I'd have to come down

and fetch my property myself.

One footstep on my land and you

know what would happen to you.

Well, let's see what we can make of it.

Oh, god, what a beauty!

Damn my soul, it is

worse than I expected.

And the devil knows

I wasn't very helpful.

Looks worse than you.

- Do you know me?

- No.

Well, your mother was a wicked slut

to keep you in ignorance of the

sort of father you possessed!

How dare you? I shall

carry him! Give over!

You have hardly the

strength to carry yourself.

Don't leave me!

I'm not staying here. I can't stay here.

- Don't leave me, Uncle Edgar!

- You'd best be kind to your son.

Else as god is my witness, I

shall find a way of hurting you!

I shall be very kind to

him. You needn't fear.

Why could he not stay just one night?

Just long enough for me

to get to know him better.

Because I do not think that is what his

father would wish for him, Catherine.

- Is he far away?

- Exceeding far.

Your father travelled all night.

When Linton's mother died, I wanted

nothing more than to have him with us.

But that is simply not possible.

We will have to remain as we have always

been. Just you and me. And Nelly here.

All I wanted was a friend!

But you took him away and

you will not tell me why!

So it is not like it always was.

It can never be like that any more!



LINTON 1805-1830. AGED 25 YEARS.
