Before The Devil Wears Prada, before Anna Wintour, there was Diana Vreeland. She was known as the "Empress of Fashion" and reigned over Harper's Bazaar andVogue for much of the 20th century, influencing everyone from Jackie Kennedy Onassis to Lauren Bacall. Interviewees include Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta and Manolo Blahnik, but it is the archival footage and the reenactments of the woman herself that offer a glimpse of her "pizzazz." Co-directed by her granddaughter-in-law, the film is stylish, breezy yet informative and at times poignant.

"I'd say this astonishing adaptation of Wuthering Heights was one of the most impressive costume dramas I've seen in years, except it's so far removed from any normal expectations of the genre that I'd hesitate to call it a costume drama at all." Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph.

Based on the classic novel by Emily Bronte, a poor boy of unknown origins is rescued from poverty and taken in by the Earnshaw family where he develops an intense relationship with his young foster sister.
