As part of my decompression, I got to see a free screening of My Cousin Rachel last night.
Based on the novel by Daphne Du Maurier, it’s a gothic thriller about a young heir that falls in love with his cousin’s widow.
Rachel Weisz, as Rachel, is perfect as the beguiling widow. Sam Claflin plays the frustrated and confused heir well.
The movie is a little slow in places, but the scenery, architecture, and costuming is fantastic. I would like to read the book (this is one of Du Maurier’s I haven’t read). I don’t normally review movies here, but I think those that like regency/Victorian gothic thrillers will enjoy it.
And just a reminder, Urban Wanderers is tomorrow! Please stop on by and support Stray Rescue.
