Geraldine Somerville and Elizabeth McGovern and Janet McTeer star in this BBC biopic which explores the secret love life of Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca and one of the best-loved writers of all time. Daphne called herself "a boy in a box" and this revealing drama shows how Daphne's incendiary love life informed her writing. Based on personal letters, this film charts Du Maurier's alleged unrequited infatuations with American publishing tycoon's wife, Ellen Doubleday and the irreverent, fun-loving actress Gertrude Lawrence.
