After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), a newly married young woman (Lily 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 (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Directed by Ben Wheatley (High Rise, Free Fire) and produced by Working Title Films (Emma., Darkest Hour), Rebecca is a gorgeously rendered psychological thriller based on Daphne du Maurier’s beloved 1938 gothic novel.

“It’s not, in any sense, a remake of the Hitchcock film, firmly not…I wanted to make something that had more love in it… Rebecca has dark elements, and it has a psychological, haunting story within it, but it’s also about these two people in love. That was the main thing.” - Ben Wheatley.


This month we will also be screening Alfred Hitchcock’s mesmerising original ‘Rebecca’(1940) on Sunday 29th at 1.30pm.
