Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, released in 1992, is based on the 1847 book by Emily Brontë which was written a year before her death.
This particular film is notable for including the oft-omitted second generation story of the children of Cathy, Hindley and Heathcliff.

It is her first and only prose novel. The movie revolves around the lives of the Earnshaws and the Lintons. It portrays the role of suffering, revenge and unrequited love in society.
Paramount Pictures was forced to use the author's name in the title of the film as Samuel Goldwyn Studio (later sold to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) owned the rights to the simple title Wuthering Heights due to the copyright on their 1939 film version of the novel.
The role of Heathcliff opened up doors for Ralph Fiennes to play Amon Goeth in Schindler's List. American director Steven Spielberg claimed he liked Fiennes for Goeth because of his "dark sexuality."
The film received mostly negative reviews from film critics. Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a score of 25% based on 8 reviews, with a rating average of 4.5 out of 10.
