Note: The following text may contain spoilers

WUTHERING HEIGHTS is an adaptation of the Bronte novel about the intense relationship between a young woman and the young man whom her father adopts and welcomes into the family house.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), and infrequent very strong language ('c**t').

Discrimination

There are also three uses of the discriminatory term 'nigger', two of which are directed at the main character by an unlikeable character over whom the protagonist eventually triumphs. The character is also immediately caned by his father as punishment for using the term.

Disturbing images

There are four scenes involving live animals, with a sheep's throat being cut, a rabbit's neck being broken and two dogs seen hanging from their collars from a fence and a branch, implying that they are left to die. Assurances have been provided by the production company explaining in detail how these scenes were filmed, including detail of special effects employed, so as not to harm any of the animals involved.
