At the Movies: “My Cousin Rachel”

Leave a comment

This week, we are at our second home (soon to be our forever home towards the end of the year).

We are busy with painting the rooms. The closets are a lot of work because of the tight quarters. In between painting, running to The Home Depot for more paint and all that, we found a little time to break for an afternoon at the show.

We went to see “My Cousin Rachel,” an adaptation of one of my favorite author’s (Daphne du Maurier) works by the same title. You might know her works from such classics as “The Birds,” “Jamaica Inn,” “Rebecca,” among others.

This movie was pretty good. I liked the period clothing and milieu, in particular. The ending was shocking and puzzling. At this point, I don’t know how well this film follows the book.

After my beau and I saw the movie, we stopped at the book store where I picked up a copy of “My Cousin Rachael.” It’s now on my reading list; a review will go up on Goodreads (maybe here, too) when I get around to reading it.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
