Storyline

After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), a newly married young woman (Lily James) arrives at Manderley, her new husband's imposing family estate on a windswept English coast. Naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim's first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley's sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Quotes

[first lines]
Mrs. de Winter: [narrating] Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again. I dreamt that where our drive once lay, a dark and tortured jungle grew. Nature had come into her own and yet the house still stood. Manderly. Secretive and silent as it had always been. Risen from the dead. Like all dreamers, I was allowed to pass through my memory. Spanning the years like a bridge. Back to that summer in Monte Carlo when I knew nothing and had no prospects.

So sad
22 October 2020 | by deeveejay-72365See all my reviews

I was excited to see this new version of a much-loved (by me) story. Sadly, this film falls horribly flat. There was no heat, no drama, and no suspense. The story and acting were both totally flat. WAY too much license taken with the story, which added nothing to the film. Dont waste your time here. Re-watch the Hitchcock version, or better still, read the book. Trust me, your inner imagination will be far more satisfying. (And I gave it two stars just because I love the story, so those two sad stars are for Daphne DuMaurier's story).
