My Cousin Rachel

Aside from the beautiful cinematography of Mike Eley and Writer/Director Roger Michell’s enigmatic script and Rachel Weisz’s presence, I found My Cousin Rachel to be a bore.
That is primarily due to Actor Sam Clafin’s portrayal of the central character, a young man going on 25, who too quickly falls in love with a woman (Weisz), who he thinks was responsible for the death of his benefactor (Tristram Davies). 

Was she or wasn’t she?  I didn’t care.  I only wish he died instead of her.

I give My Cousin Rachel a 3 out of 5 only because I may have not been in the mood for this type of drama.  And, actually, the rest of the cast, including Iain Glen and Holiday Grainger, was excellent.
