Reviewer Rating Review
Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - Rachel Weisz can rock some widow's garb, it's not easy to look fetching in black lace mantillas. And she's perfect for the role, as Weisz is not so much beautiful as she is fetching and beguiling and a commanding presence. I also love the subtle ghostly elements in My Cousin Rachel, there's definitely scenes that could point to Ambrose trying to warn Philip from the grave. The movie delivers a sense of foreboding and although I never for once trusted Rachel, I spoke with another movie-goer in the ladies room, who felt the complete opposite, so I think the movie successfully keeps you guessing even after it ends.
