I’m a sucker for films based on classic novels, which makes me super excited for “My Cousin Rachel” starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin. It’s based on the classic novel of the same name by Daphne Du Maurier, the original queen of romantic-thrillers. This dark romance tells the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
That young Englishman is played by Sam Claflin, who I had the pleasure of interviewing all the way back in 2013, (love him!) and Academy Award-winner Rachel Weisz as his mysterious cousin. Check out the trailer:
This gorgeous period piece arrives in theaters in the U.S. on June 9, 2017. Find more information when you follow the film:
