Along with Black Venus, another film we''ve covered extensively here on S & A is British filmmaker Andrea Arnold's naturalistic, revisonist new film version of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, set in the Yorkshire Moors, with Heathcliff reimagined as a runaway black slave (played by James Howson), along with "rough language and kinky eroticism."

Wuthering Heights

Along with Black Venus, another film we''ve covered extensively here on S & A is British filmmaker Andrea Arnold's naturalistic, revisonist new film version of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, set in the Yorkshire Moors, with Heathcliff reimagined as a runaway black slave (played by James Howson), along with "rough language and kinky eroticism."

The film will have an special advance screening before its theatrical release at the 15th annual European Union Film Festival (where Black Venus will also be screened - scroll down) at the Gene Siskel Film Center in downtown Chicago on Sunday March 25th at 4:45PM.

According to one friend who saw the film at the Toronto Film Festival, it was the "slowest" film he's ever seen. That in an odd way makes me even more interested to see it.
