Synopsis

When young Englishman Philip (Sam Claflin) reads a letter from his former guardian that tells of the torture he is enduring at the hands of their beautiful cousin Rachel (Rachel Weisz), whom he has married, Philip sets off by horseback to help. When Philip discovers his guardian is dead, he decides to get revenge, believing Rachel to be a murderess.

When he meets Rachel, Philip finds her to be a charming, beautiful woman. She explains to him what happened, saying that her husband became ill and was hallucinating when he wrote that letter. He trusted no one and tried to hurt her. Philip slowly begins to fall under Rachel's spell himself and becomes infatuated with her, even though he begins to feel ill after she serves him a foul-tasting tea.

Adapted from Daphne Du Maurier's 1951 novel of the same name.

  • 2 stars "Disappointing sequel to MY COUSIN VINNY misses Pesci and Tomei big-time. 2/5"
  • 4 stars "I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The acting was superb and the scenery was so inviting. The story was cleverly written to leave you just not knowing in the end. Great suspense."
  • 4 stars "Great ?? movie but didn't understand why he had and affair with his cousin. Very weird. But worth to go and see it."
