Thanks to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and the underrated Jamaica Inn, Daphne du Maurier is a well known writer among movie buffs. But of course her work is known outside of Hitchcock’s circles thanks to Nicolas Roeg’s classic Don’t Look Now and with the recent release My Cousin Rachel. Headlined by Rachel Weisz, My Cousin Rachel hits Blu-ray and DVD via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on August 29.
The plotline centers on Philip (Sam Claflin), a young Englishman who plots revenge on Rachel (Weisz), the cousin he believes murdered the man who raised him. In the process he eventually falls in love with her, thus complicating his intentions.
Both the Blu-ray and DVD versions are filled with extras which include deleted scenes, audio commentary from director Roger Michell and Kevin Loader, photo gallery and several featurettes on the making of the movie.
