Masterpiece Classic: Wuthering Heights

Saturday, December 8 and 15 at 11:00 p.m.

The Earnshaw children expect gifts from their father when he returns to Wuthering Heights after a trip, but are instead greeted with the arrival of Heathcliff, a young Gypsy boy who has come to live with them.

Quiet and mysterious, Heathcliff is befriended by Cathy Earnshaw, and the two become inseparable. In adulthood, their bond deepens to love, but a forced absence opens Cathy to the affections of a different suitor. Given the choice between a life of comfort and a profound love, Cathy's actions have repercussions for multiple generations in this haunting story of turbulent passion and revenge.

Tom Hardy ("Oliver Twist") stars as Heathcliff, with newcomer Charlotte Riley as Cathy.
