Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) stars alongside Oscar nominees Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) and Kristin Scott Thomas (Darkest Hour) for this adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's mystery thriller novel. From director Ben Wheatley (High-Rise) and screenwriter Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service).
After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Hammer), a newly married young woman (James) arrives at Manderley, her new husband’s imposing family estate on a windswept English coast. Naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life but finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim’s first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Thomas).
The novel was originally adapted to film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1940.
