The most famous adaptation of Rebecca, Daphne duMaurier's Gothic romance, is the Oscar-winningAlfred Hitchcock classic starring Laurence Olivierand Joan Fontaine. How can Ben Wheatley's newversion possibly compete? Well, one answer is tohave Kristin Scott Thomas as the formidable MrsDanvers, a stroke of casting genius which is enoughto justify the film's existence. Another answer,which Wheatley gave at the 2019 London FilmFestival, is "going back to the book and trying to get closer to the actual story... You think youknow it and you just don't." Lily James stars as the innocent young woman who is swept offher feet by a handsome English widower (Armie Hammer) in Monte Carlo. But when she marrieshim and moves into his Cornwall mansion, she is haunted by the reputation of the previousMrs de Winter.

Andrea Riseborough stars as an assassin who can telepathically control other people's bodiesand get them to do the killing for her.
