Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights, released in 1992, is based on the 1847 book by Emily Brontë which was written a year before her death.
This particular film is notable for including the oft-omitted second generation story of the children of Cathy, Hindley, and Heathcliff.
The movie revolves around the lives of the Earnshaws and the Lintons. It portrays the role of suffering, revenge, and unrequited love in society.

Paramount Pictures was forced to use the author's name in the title of the film as Samuel Goldwyn Studio (later sold to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) owned the rights to the simple title Wuthering Heights due to the copyright on their 1939 film version of the novel.
