This new film comes complete with a lot of period-piece cachet: The production company also worked on Becoming Jane and Mrs. Brown, and the writer, Olivia Hetreed, also adapted The Girl with the Pearl Earring for film. And, of course, Portman just appeared in The Other Boleyn Girl.
What do you think of Portman as Catherine? She doesn't really have the look or the voice I pictured when reading the book, but on the other hand, I'm not sure what actress I'd rather have playing the part. I just seem to enjoy her so much more in modern roles rather than period pieces.
And, I'm serious: Who would pair well with her as Heathcliff?
