"Went to see this film yesterday with my daughter. I have to say I think it's probably the worst film I've seen all year. By choosing a black actor to play Heathcliff the film introduces a racist element which simply isn't there in the book. The lack of dialogue was annoying, and what dialogue there was had been updated, and seemed totally out of place in this period piece. I hated it and so did my daughter, who incidentally has never read the book. She told me that for most of the film she could not understand what was going on. A complete mess of a film.. I really don't get why the critics like it so much when it's obvious that on the whole the audience loathes it."
