Poldark’s elder brother !
- My Cousin Rachel review by JD
Enjoyed this beautiful movie.
Well cast, lovely locations, and an excellent story.
Did she, or didn’t she ? No spoilers here but that question is the core of the film.
Many years since I read the book so even I could not anticipate the ending..........
If you liked Poldark you will love this too.
Very interesting extras too, lovely to see the snow “ transformation” treatment, and that cliff...........
Watch and enjoy.

The film stretches credulity and is manipulative
- My Cousin Rachel review by JR
The film has some nice views of the Cornish landscape, but the plot stretches credulity and tries to manipulate the audience with unsubtle red herrings. Sam Clafin tries to channel Hugh Grant unsuccessfully, lacking the self deprecating humour. Rachel Weisz is better cast, but the part defeats even her acting powers. The script has glaring language anachronisms and Americanisms. After sitting through all this claptrap, the viewer is even deprived of a conclusion to the 'did she or didn't she? ' .
