My Cousin Rachel Trailer

My Cousin Rachel, based on the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier, stars Sam Claflin as Philip, a young 19th-century Cornishman who becomes convinced that his guardian has been murdered by his alluring yet ambiguous wife Rachel (Rachel Weisz) – while simultaneously falling for her charms.

Alternately beguiling, vulnerable and terrifying, Rachel is a classic femme fatale, played with cool relish by Weisz. Of course, she’s nowhere near the first fictional female to be bad news for the fictional male. The origins of the femme fatale archetype reach right back to the beginnings of culture, with early specimens ranging from the demonic Lilith, to the riddle-setting Sphinx of Thebes and the Bible’s treacherous Delilah.
