Roger Michell United Kingdom, 2017

msmichel's rating of the film My Cousin Rachel

Poor adaptation of the Daphne Du Maurier novel by the usually reliable Roger Michell. Story and performances seem to fall flat throughout with very little tension, mystery or interest within. The limitations of Sam Claflin are painfully obvious and Rachel Weisz seems to have played similar characters far too many times before. Scoring better in a smaller role is Holliday Grainger.
