Watch the Beautiful Exclusive Trailer for Wuthering Heights

When adapting a classic novel for the screen, it's one thing to preserve the winning words that were on the page, but it's another crucial thing to find a way to tell that story visually, too. That's not a problem that bedevils Wuthering Heights, the new adaptation of Emily Brontë's novel from director Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank); her film is an utterly gorgeous take, distinctly shot, with those famous moors presented like never before. Arnold cast black actor James Howson as Heathcliff in this version, whose love for Cathy (Skins star Kaya Scodelario) ignites a passionate rivalry. Vulture's got the exclusive premiere of the trailer for Wuthering Heights, which Oscilloscope says will open October 5 at Film Forum followed by bows in Los Angeles, Seattle, and other markets. Enjoy!
