      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Ben Wheatley's Rebecca remake is ravishing to behold, but it never quite gets to the heart of the classic source material -- or truly justifies its own existence.

      Sarah R What was an interesting, suspenseful book with hints of psychological thriller in it became a vapid, rushed, and bland movie that sapped two hours of my life. If you like your movies to stick to the plot of your books, avoid this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Sasha B I and my boyfriend watched the whole movie with anticipation! Loved it ! Beautiful characters and acting . Would have loved to see some flashbacks but still the twists and turn and unexpected ending ! Loved it ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review Laythe H Not bad but a bunch of ridiculous and unreal events kind of ruined it for me. Women might like it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review James R Sensational retelling of the classic novel. Lily James is the star here, and the movie is a phenomenal thriller of chilling proportions. Forget Armie Hammer, Lily James and Kristen Scott-Thomas shine here. Giving a fresh take on the story of the new Mrs De Winter, who has to contend with (in a nutshell) the villainous housekeeper and the ghost of her predecessor, Lily James breathes life into the role and the tone, the ambience, the eerieness of Manderely is on full display. A fantastic set-piece, it does not disappoint from start to finish. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Salome J I watched this shortly after it came out and recently I've watched it again. I find it weird that it only got 38% from viewers. Is this only in comparison to the older version or the novel? I loved it. So suspenseful that the second time I watched it, even though I knew the outcome, I still had to take breaks to let the tension dissipate. maybe it's because I avoid action movies so I'm not used to fast pacing. If you've read the novel, you know that it's much slower than this film. I tried recently to read it but the opening is such a long detailed description of the gardens at Manderlay that I couldn't get past it.4.5 stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/09/23 Full Review Steve B Lily James was great, good character development, good screenplay and great costumes and scenery. Do not understand others' low opinion. We enjoyed it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roxana Hadadi Pajiba This is a melodramatic tale of class disparity and imposter syndrome and compulsive jealousy and explosive fury, and the execution here is just ... tepid. Lukewarm. Dec 7, 2020 Full Review Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph (UK) Overall, it's a highly polished and consistently enjoyable watch that feels a little hemmed in by convention. Rated: 3/5 Nov 20, 2020 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) This dreary, garish take on Rebecca never justifies its presence. Rated: 2/5 Nov 12, 2020 Full Review Soham Gadre Vague Visages Rebecca feels sanded out, erased of all imperfection, identity and mystery. Jan 9, 2024 Full Review Shannon Campe The Spool The casting is not the Wheatley Rebecca’s biggest problem, but it certainly doesn’t help. Aug 25, 2023 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Netflix’s version of Rebecca gets lost in trying to balance so many genres in just one film. Rated: C Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
