Description

In 1801, Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlord, Heathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant. Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window.
Mr Earnshaw, père de famille, a deux enfants: un fils, Hindley, et une fille, Catherine. Parti en voyage à Liverpool pendant plusieurs semaines, le vieil Earnshaw revient avec sous son manteau un petit bohémien errant d'environ 6 ans, Heathcliff. Hindley et lui entrent rapidement en conflit et, à la mort du père, Hindley devient le maître de maison. Heathcliff est alors traité plus durement que jamais. La petite Catherine et lui se découvrent de tendres sentiments qui n'auront de cesse de s'approfondir au fil de leur adolescence. Rêvant tous deux d'un avenir plus glorieux que leurs vies respectives, les deux enfants s’échappent fréquemment dans la lande pour aspirer à de jours meilleurs.
