Philip(Sam Claflin) an orphan who grows up to inherit his cousin's estate becomes infatuated with the latter's widow Rachel(Rachel Weisz).

C who knew the story well felt there wasn't much edge to the suspense but he enjoyed the interpretation nonetheless. I knew nothing of the story and was more intrigued than C as to where the plot was headed.
