"Together, Fiennes and Binoche pull off a passionate
yet bitter and charismatic relationship."
Jennifer Mangan – The Chicago Tribune
"Binoche is the pearl of the casting. Her performance is
a simmering pot of innocent charm and searing passion."
"Intriguingly different and,
on its own terms, quite rewarding."
John J. O’Connor – The New York Times
Peter Kosminsky asked me to do Wuthering Heights and the shooting did not go too well. Later, he wrote me this most beautiful letter and it changed my life because it was the most loving letter. It was a recognition of what had happened.”
