For a lover of period romance films, “My Cousin Rachel” seems at first to be unique and intriguing in its suspense and mystery. However, the film in its entirety effectively demonstrates the misleading power of a well-edited trailer.

The script pulls no punches when it comes to the way in which overwrought administrations are stifling fun, and this gives the movie a winking subtext that transcends the juvenile humor at its surface. Kids and adults alike will find something to smile at while watching the movie.

It’s not as if the script does the cast any favors either. Not only is every character on display a putrid combination of unlikeable and simply, egregiously stupid, but they are given no funny material with which to work.

It isn’t without its flaws, but overall it is a worthy piece of filmmaking. Its visually stunning finale could even be looked at as a promise that more familiar — at least in intensity — territory lies ahead for fans of the franchise.
