Did she or didn't she? In the spirit of not giving away any plot spoilers, I won't elaborate on any of the details of the story. Suffice to say that the film represents the genius storytelling of Du Maurier because you will be thinking/talking about it for days after and there are very few stories that can do that to a reader/audience.

The clues are cunningly laid throughout the plot and the misdirection is perfectly executed. The scenery is stunning so well worth a watch just for that. However, the film was too slow in places and the acting felt forced and unnatural.
