To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was really looking forward to this production . What a disappointment. I can never understand when you have a fabulous book they then go and change the story. It was wrong, wrong , wrong. Oh well, I will go back to the book and enjoy it again as it was originally written by Daphne du maurier.
Arguably one of the great modern novelists, Daphne du Maurier has contributed 2 of the finest tales to the English language. One is certainly Rebecca, the other is My Cousin Rachel. The latter is utterly compelling and stresses and disturbs with its refined psychological energy right up until the final moment when the reader is, in an instant, released from its constricting vice-like grip.
Sadly the film whole-heartedly fails to deliver, never succeeding in capturing the electricity and sense of the driven that courses through the written page, until it peters out, after 106 minutes, with a disappointing sensation of anti-climax.
My advice - spend £6.64 on the paperback and donate the remaining £3.36 of the cost of this DVD to the Royal British Legion.
