April Film Matinee: My Cousin Rachel
A superb rendition of Daphne du Mauriers sinister story of the mysterious Rachel - did she or didnt she? - this film offers a good story, a faithful adaptation of the novel (the end is made rather more dramatic), and good performances, especially from Rachel Weisz as Rachel. The youthful naivet of the protagonist, Philip, is perfectly captured by Sam Claflin. The youthful quality of Philip is an essential plot device, set against the worldly sophistication of Rachel, and the tension between the two is beautifully maintained throughout the film. This is a most enjoyable drama and will not disappoint du Mauriers fans.
