A new version of a Daphne du Maurier classic mystery romance, all Gothic half-light, swishing petticoats, moody attraction and mutual suspicion.  Ohhh!  Rachel Weisz plays enigmatic cousin Rachel, who arrives at her new home in Cornwall after the unexpected death abroad of her elderly husband, Ambrose.  She is met there by Ambrose's ward, the impetuous and passionate Phillip (Sam Claflin), who has good cause to be suspicious of this mysterious widow.  He is quickly captivated by the alluring Rachel, though, and finds himself ignoring warnings from all around him.

Other du Maurier adaptations - The Birds, Don't Look Now, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, etc - have provided great film material, and we have high expectations of this classy adaptation!  It was originally filmed in 1957 with a dream team of Richard Burton and Olivia de Havilland, and a revisit is more than overdue.
