Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener) stars in Roger Michell’s (Enduring Love) dark, impassioned adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1951 novel, a thriller of swirling suspicion and intrigue. Weisz is the beautiful, enigmatic Rachel, widow to Ambrose, who arrives in Cornwall to stay with Ambrose’s younger cousin Philip (Sam Claflin) on his family estate. Initially suspicious of her, he questions the circumstances of Ambrose’s death and suspects foul play – but when she arrives, he nevertheless begins to fall quickly under her spell.
