Cold, cruel, and beautiful

Beautiful film adaptation. It crawls under the skin like the biting north wind in the forefront of the story. The landscape and characters are both cruel and natural, and capture the essence of Bronte's story. Those looking for a very literal summary of the epic work should look elsewhere. Those who haven't read the book and discussed it first should also look elsewhere. The movie would probably be "R" if rated, due to the aforementioned language. I recommend the movie for intelligent and thoughtful teens 13 and up, although the movie may result in some angsty existential funk for a few days.
