Based on the acclaimed novel by Daphne du Maurier first published in 1951, the film stars Academy Award Winner Rachel Weisz in the title role alongside San Claflin, two of the busiest actors working today. Weisz has had a busy couple of years after a couple of years away, starring in The Light Between Oceans, The Lobster, Youth and Denial, which was released earlier this year. Claflin, meanwhile, has been involved in just as many with Me Before You, The Huntsman: Winter’s War and Their Finest, which is due for release later this month.
