My Cousin Rachel (2017) Review
My Cousin Rachel is directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Changing Lanes) and stars Rachel Weisz (The Mummy, Constantine) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games). "A young Englishman 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". Released in the midst of summer blockbusters, can a small period drama like My Cousin Rachel shine?
"My Cousin Rachel" Review
Roger Michell may not be a familiar name, but he's directed several movies you've likely heard of, including the Hugh Grant/Julia Roberts rom-com "Notting Hill", the charming TV news comedy "Morning Glory" and the underwhelming "Hyde Park on Hudson", starring Bill Murray as FDR.
Fox Puts 'My Cousin Rachel' Remake on 2017's Schedule
Fox Searchlight will release a new adaptation of the 1951 novel My Cousin Rachel on May 5, 2017, starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin. — This puts the film directly up against Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, so it's not going to win any box office glory though it could likely find an audience that wants something other than superhero, comic book fare.
