My Cousin Rachel (12A)

Drama, Mystery, Romance

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

The critical consensus

Handsome but hurried adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier classic, starring Rachel Weisz.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 05/06/2017S

Not the most interesting or likely of stories, but a scintillating lead turn.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 06/06/2017

Writer-director Michell tells an at times overheated story in a cool and stylish way.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 07/06/2017

Handsomely done but short on the atmosphere and passion of a genre classic. Michell is a safe pair of hands but it doesn’t grip tightly, while Claflin’s chemistry with Weisz fizzles.

***(*)(*)Angie Errigo, The List, 05/06/2017

In Roger Michell’s highly enjoyable thriller based on the Daphne du Maurier novel a mean and manipulative widow exploits her feline sexuality.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 08/06/2017

A tasteful yet quietly sinister adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s gothic period novel.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 08/06/2017

A fine period drama and a welcome alternative to a summer of mindless blockbusters.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 09/06/2017

Rachel Weisz is captivating as the enigmatic heroine in a Daphne du Maurier adaptation that adds modern psychology to the period drama.
