I love period pieces. Period mysteries . Especially gothic.
I havent read many gothic romance books but nonetheless there is nothing like the chill that creeps in my bones, or the adrenaline in the blood, or the heart beat of one falling in love.
However, there is nothing more annoying when the heroine/hero ignores all signs all warnings by others set before them. They ignore their instincts,So when they succumb before the villain is set upon them they are bewildered.
There were warnings! There were signs all were not right! Why ignore their gut feelings?
To make the plot ever so devilish?
or to make scream in frustration.
such as this movie.
this film is based on Daphne Du Maurier’s book My Cousin Rachel.
Phillip is trying to discover if Rachel poisoned his guardian or if he indeed died of a brain tumor.
Why not heed his guardian’s paranoia. his guardian complained of sickness and headaches. The tea tasted off? Dont drink it. Spill it instead.
ahh I want to watch this movie. Just because I love a good mystery, the deductions.
