Storyline

In 1845 at Haworth on the Yorkshire moors sisters Anne, Charlotte and Emily Bronte and their father, a retired parson with failing eye-sight, are continually troubled by their drunken, irresponsible brother Branwell, who wastes every opportunity given him to become an artist. Charlotte fears for her own sight whilst Emily seeks refuge in writing about the imaginary land of Gondor but all three are fearful for their future should their menfolk die. Charlotte is impressed by Emily's work and encourages her to write a novel, inspired by a story told her by a former employer, which will become 'Wuthering Heights' All three sisters write novels, loosely based on their own experiences using androgynous masculine pen-names which are ultimately accepted for publication. Their success allows them to identify their true gender and to save the roof over their heads but Branwell's self-indulgence leads to his early death and both Emily and Anne succumb to sickness, dying young. An end title ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Why so much Bramwell
27 March 2017 | by deanandfranSee all my reviews

It is beyond me why they spent so much time filming Bramwell when the title indicates that the movie is about the sisters. While I enjoyed it, having visited the home and pub, I wanted much more about the sisters. Seemed a little glossed over. Actresses were good, just wanted more about the sisters. Lovely story about these very talented ladies.
