Emma Mackey: Emily (Bleecker Street)

My piece for the Scarecrow blog this week, and etc.

Emily/Wuthering Heights. “There may be loftier issues at play for our brooding heroine, but she’s also interested in a little hey-hey in the hayloft, rendered here in the heavy-breathing way you’d expect.”

We’ll be gearing up another free online “semester” of Scarecrow Academy beginning next Saturday, March 4, at 2 pm Pacific Time. Our subject this time is “Women in Trouble: Great Melodrama in Film,” a ten-week look at variations on a genre sometimes dismissively called the “women’s picture.” See the Scarecrow Academy page for more info and how to sign up to join our discussions. Check the poster below for titles and dates.
