February 11, 2021
In any event, the British still do these things relatively well, in their sleep, as it were. This is probably Michell's best film since Persuasion (1995).

In its own way, it's all very handsomely done, with Olivia de Havilland as the enigmatic Rachel and newcomer Richard Burton as the nephew.

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

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.

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.
