Andreea's rating of the film My Cousin Rachel

On paper it sounds just like my type of book (it's written by Daphne du Maurier), but on the screen it doesn't do much... the gothic is missing, a bit of suspense and ambiguity is there, but not done well... and I know I have not read the book, but I'm convinced Maurier does it better than this film. Although Rachel Weisz is hypnotic! And the costumes are gorgeous.
