Female characters are seldom allowed to loom so large, and "My Cousin Rachel" reminds what a delight it can be when they do.

Rachel Weisz's wily-or-winsome widow crackles with dangerous allure, but can't gee up this sedate mystery.

A fresh and un-stuffy period drama, but it could have done with a pinch more danger.

Weisz shows her Oscar-winning talents by hitting precisely the right notes throughout My Cousin Rachel: from warmth to guile to chilly practicality.

Weisz runs the gamut of emotions even when the script backs her into corners of banality. She's the reason this old-school nailbiter brims with dread and delight.

...there's enough dark sizzle between leads Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin to keep the audience involved through the underpowered middle stretches before the film regains its footing, delivering a disquieting shiver of a conclusion.

Handsomely done but short on the atmosphere and passion of a genre classic. Michell is a safe pair of hands but it doesn’t grip tightly, while Claflin’s chemistry with Weisz fizzles.
