Lovely adaptation of Du Maurier's classic, mysterious, beguiling novel
15 June 2017 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

In the early 1800's, Philip (Sam Claflin) reflects on his life. Orphaned at an early age, he was raised by a kind cousin, Ambrose. It was just us men, Philip says often, on a fine mansion and grounds in Cornwall, right on the coast. But, alas, when Philip returned home from boarding school, Ambrose got ill and journeyed to Italy for the finer climate. The two men, very close, correspond with frequent letters. Astonishingly, Ambrose meets a widow, Rachel (Rachel Weisz) and marries her abroad. Philip knows nothing of the lady but what Ambrose relates. At first, the older cousin declares his unbridled joy. But, soon, letters arrive for Philip that Rachel has changed and that she may be worsening Ambrose's health. As Philip hastens to journey to Florence, he arrives too late. Ambrose is dead and Rachel has vanished. A "friend" of the couple tells Philip that the post mortem showed a tumor was responsible and he knows not where Rachel has gone. In anger, grief, and perplexity, Philip goes home. He is much admired by his Godfather's daughter, Louise (Holliday Granger) who visits often but Philip only looks on her as a friend. Unbelievably, word comes that RACHEL is on her way to Cornwall for a visit! What an opportunity it will be for Philip to berate her, as he considers her responsible for his beloved cousin's death. On the rainy night of her arrival, however, Philip meets her in her quarters and is astonished with her beauty, grace, and seeming kindness. He soon believes it would have been impossible for this woman to murder anyone. Moreover, Philip falls deeply in love with his cousin's widow and the older woman appears to return his admiration. This leads to Philip making grave mistakes regarding his estate and his future. What does Rachel really care for, love, money or deception? This lovely, terrific adaptation of Du Maurier's classic work deserves high praise indeed. The cast is terrific, with Weisz beguiling as the mysterious Rachel and Claflin wonderful as the naive, handsome, tempestuous Philip. Granger and all of the supporting cast do great work, also. The setting could hardly be more beautiful, with the farmland, woods, and dangerously lovely coast. Care has been taken to recreate the time period and Gothic story, aided by deft direction. Movie fans of quality films, here's your latest gift from a Hollywood that doesn't bestow such works very often. Don't miss it!
