My cousin rachel is a novel by british author daphne du maurier, published in 1951 like the earlier rebecca, it is a mystery-romance, set primarily on a large.
Not fair, maybe, but “my cousin rachel” is, like alfred hitchcock's “rebecca,” based on a novel by daphne du maurier, master of the moody. Whether she's smooching ryan reynolds in “definitely, maybe,” or playing a blind runaway in “the lobster,” it is hard to avoid the charms of.
Du maurier's novel is a tightly plotted, sinuous and undeniably feral piece of work that puts power in the hands of women. In my cousin rachel, all of these criteria are met, and not much has been adjusted to make the film unique in any meaningful way.
