Her desire to leave the simple life conflicts with his wishes for them to stay at the Heights (their lighthouse home) together. It gets worse when her father dies, leaving everything to Cate's awful older brother Hendrix, who hates Heath. Cate ends up marrying the wealthy Edward, while the bitter Heath becomes a rock star and exacts revenge upon those who mistreated him. Once he and Cate start an affair, tragedy follows.

Modern beachy take on the material leaves a mess
2 May 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

MTV does the Emily Brontë novel in a beachy rocking take on the material. One day, Cate and Hendrix's father (John Doe) brings home their new adopted brother Heath. Cate (Erika Christensen) and Heath (Mike Vogel) would fall in love. Hendrix (Johnny Whitworth) is an angry young man who hates Heath. When their father dies, Hendrix takes over and drive Heath away. Cate has a car accident and is rescued by wealthy neighbor Edward (Christopher Masterson). Edward's conniving sister Isabel (Katherine Heigl) schemes to break apart Cate and Heath keeping Heath to herself. Cate would marry Edward. Heath becomes a rich rock star and his return causes havoc.

The acting is laughable for the most part. Erika Christensen is the only good part of this movie. Mike Vogel could be a passable douche but he's a horrible Heath(cliff). He overacts in every scene yelling and screaming. He just doesn't have the charisma. The production is acceptable for a TV movie. The music ranges from uninspired to horrible. The movie aspires to be so much more but ends up being a weak young adult melodrama. It's an experiment gone wrong.
