Movie: My Cousin Rachel

A pigeon-pair for Daphne du Maurier’s other well-known book/movie Rebecca, here we have a young man who is unsure whether his uncle’s wife is a tragic widow or an arch manipulator.  Rachel Weisz is suitably enigmatic and your sympathies for her shift as quickly as her facial expressions do. It’s like watching a slow-motion train wreck.

My rating:  3.5

    I haven’t seen the modern film version of My Cousin Rachel, but I loved the book and the 1950s film version. It goes to show that if you love a book, the film from that book may leave you disappointed.
