**1/2 Wuthering Heights Director Andrea Arnold (“Fish Tank”) wants to rescue the primitive emotionalism of Emily Brontë’s classic novel, and the first half of this “Heights” is a thrillingly rough found object. Sadly, the second half is ponderous and silly. With Solomon Glave and James Howson as Heathcliff young and old and Shannon Beer and Kaya Scodelario as Cathy. (129 min., unrated) (Ty Burr)
