This film uses an engrossing love story to pierce the heart of the literary femme fatale archetype to its very core.

It's worth checking out for Rachel Weisz' performance and beautiful production values.

A borderline anticlimactic end doesn't quite deliver on the impressive constructions of My Cousin Rachel's first two acts, but a stirring epilogue provides an effective capstone to this nuanced thriller.

It's worth a watch in theaters, but I would just caution to expect for a very heavy, and thought-provoking film. Even then, you're probably still not ready to watch it.

A film of wonderful performances and a did she/didn't she story that had me on the edge of my seat, along with their rather cavalier attitude to candles when in the presence of muslin drapes and white cotton nighties.

It's Rachel Weisz as auteur that elevates the potentially maudlin into something notable.

There was a lot to like about My Cousin Rachel, as the story kept me guessing and it was beautiful to watch. The gorgeous sets, well done costumes, and especially the acting of the background characters...

My Cousin Rachel really is prototypical claptrap. It's possessed of such a flat and minimal conceit that is so telegraphed, it's beyond satire.

In a film that is all about beguilement, Weisz is perfectly cast as Rachel.

While we are left scratching our heads as to whether Rachel is trying to kill Philip, it's more disappointing that she doesn't succeed.
August 21, 2018
The film becomes expectedly wooden and melodramatic.

My Cousin Rachel is Rachel Weisz at her very best.

Michell knows his way around a camera, and has a fine sense of location ... The entire affair needs a little more energy, however, to raise it above the obviousness of its conceit.

Roger Michell wrote and directs this adaptation with the flair it needs to connect to a new generation who may never have even heard of it.

As long as the focus is on Weisz, "My Cousin Rachel" is real and satisfying curiosity on today's film landscape, a performance-fueled work anchored by a strong female lead who knows and remains true to herself.

It has good actors, truly lovely Cornwall landscapes and the appeal of a genteel parlor drama, but alas, it is a bit too dull and ultimately unknowable for its own good.

Weisz is terrific, though not in a way she hasn't been terrific before.
December 1, 2017
Offers up a fascinating, if unfinished, portrait of a woman's attempt to buck a system that affords her less autonomy than her intelligence and sensitivity demand.
November 26, 2017
My Cousin Rachel is a well-made period dramatic thriller...
November 5, 2017
Michell has brought the shockingly-timely text back into modern relevancy by reinvigorating the novel's feminist bent.
