Audience Reviews for My Cousin Rachel

Moody and beautifully shot gothic tale that features a good performance from Richard Burton and a the expected good work from Ms. de Havilland. The story isn't sure what it wants to be and leaves too many open questions. Burton received the first of many Oscar nominations. Strange that he was nominated in the Supporting Actor category when he is featured in almost every scene. This is HIS movie.
