"Anfang der 1930er-Jahre kehrt ein Ire nach Jahren im Exil in sein Heimatdorf zurück, um sich um seine Mutter zu kümmern. Auf Bitte der Dorfjugend und seiner früheren Kampfgenossen eröffnet er wieder eine alte Tanzhalle, die er nicht nur als Vergnügungsstätte nutzt, sondern auch als politisches Forum. Das bringt ihn ins Visier von Staat und Kirche, die um ihre Vormachtstellung fürchten. Der von Ken Loach selbst als sein "letztes" Werk annoncierter Film erzählt die Geschichte des irischen Polit-Aktivisten Jimmy Gralton (1886-1945) und bündelt noch einmal seine Themen um die Solidarisierung mit dem "einfachen Mann".

"Ein 59-jähriger britischer Zimmermann erleidet kurz vor dem Rentenalter einen leichten Herzinfarkt und ist erstmals in seinem Leben auf staatliche Hilfe angewiesen. Beim Kampf mit Anträgen und Formularen lernt er eine alleinerziehende Mutter kennen, die ähnlich erniedrigende Erfahrungen mit der Bürokratie gemacht hat. Trotz komödiantischer Töne liegt die Stärke der Inszenierung im politischen Zorn, mit dem Regisseur Ken Loach die Herzlosigkeit der verwalteten Welt auf den Deregulierungswahn der Neokonservativen zurückführt. Biblische Anklänge in der Passionsgeschichte des Handwerkers sind dabei nicht zu übersehen." []

Während ihm Hindley mit Hass begegnet, verbindet ihn mit Cathy bald eine enge Freundschaft. Über die Jahre wird aus Verbundenheit Leidenschaft. Als jedoch der alte Earnshaw stirbt, übernimmt Hindley den Hof und vertreibt den ungeliebten Stiefbruder. Cathy wird unterdessen von Edgar, Sohn einer wohlhabenden Nachbarsfamilie, der Hof gemacht. Hin- und hergerissen zwischen Liebe und Vernunft trifft sie eine folgenschwere Entscheidung. Bonusmaterial: Impressionen vom Filmfest in Venedig inklusive Interview mit der Regisseurin Andrea Arnold Originaltrailer Deutscher Trailer Pressezitate: "Ein kraftvoller, schroffer und tieftrauriger Film." (FAZ) "Intensiv und überzeugend." ( "Atmosphärisch beeindruckende Verfilmung." ( "Für Literaturfans ist Wuthering Heights von der britischen Oscar-Preisträgerin Andrea Arnolds ein ganz neues Sinngefühl. Es ist möglich Literatur modern und anders zu verfilmen, ohne dass es unpassend wirkt. Dieser Film zeigt, was Film zu bieten hat und was für schöne Vorlagen an Geschichten voller obsessiver Liebe, verletzter Ehre und grausamer Rache die Literatur zu bieten hat. Vielleicht macht Wuthering Heights auch wieder Lust sich mehr mit den großen Liebesgeschichten der internationalen Literatur auseinanderzusetzen." (
