My Cousin Rachel Review by Michelle
Star
Philip is an orphan, raised by his slightly-older cousin, Ambrose, who he came to regard as a father. But when Ambrose travels alone to Italy and falls in love with a woman named Rachel, Philip can’t help but feel neglected. Soon, word arrives that Ambrose and Rachel are married – and then, Ambrose’s letters home begin to take a worrying tone. Ambrose is sick, and blames Rachel for his illness. When Ambrose dies in Italy, Philip is furious, and is determined to confront Rachel, who he is convinced is directly responsible for Ambrose’s death. However, upon meeting Rachel – young, beautiful, mysterious Rachel – Philip is suddenly lost for words…

1) Did you like the film?

I really enjoyed My Cousin Rachel, and if literary adaptations, fancy costumes and repressed sexual tension are your jam, then I think you’ll love it too.

2) Why?

What, fancy costumes and repressed sexual tension aren’t enough to convince you? Okay, fine – from the very first scene, My Cousin Rachel will grab you and won’t let go until its thrilling conclusion. If you’re looking for something romantic – say, along the lines of Pride and Prejudice, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. This isn’t a love story. My Cousin Rachel is dark and twisted and dripping with drama.

3) You’ll enjoy this movie if…

I’ll say it again – My Cousin Rachel is a literary adaptation (based on the book by Daphne du Maurier, the author of Rebecca), it has fancy costumes galore, the repressed sexual tension will fog up your television screen…and did I forgot to mention Game of Thrones’ Ser Jorah Mormont is in it?

(…All the other actors are A+ too.)

4) This film made me think about…

I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t read the book. I need to fix that…where’s the nearest library?

5) Overall rating?

Four and a half stars. (Posted on 1/11/2017)
