Z grade rubbish

Terrible adaptation of wuthering heights,started off promisingly but with some very poor acting from the female lead and not much better from the support cast it quickly dives into a downward spiral of telemovie nonsense. Loads of forlorn looks and perfectly coiffed leads to keep younger teens interested but ultimately it's a pretty bad film which plays out like a high budget episode of dawson's creek without the creative dialogue or chemistry Not sure what James Caan was thinking when he accepted this role but he was the only shining light in an absolute dog of a film.

I recommend this movie for children/teens 15 years+ Great movie, strong story line and it brings out the best of your emotions. The ending was not your typical 'boy gets girl', and that is what makes the movie a brilliant watch. The movie holds your attention all throughout. It is probably the best movie I have seen in a long time. The cast of the movie are not your everyday Grammy award winners, but that definitely adds to the movie. I, myself tend to love a movie with the average stereotyped characters that are the rich and popular. This movie covered that and added the thriller edge to it. A romanced filled movie that can leave you speechless. If your not into romance this movie will not be for you, but still worth the watch.
