Rebecca | Official Trailer | Netflix.
While working as a companion to Mrs. Van Hopper (Ann Dowd), a rich American woman on holiday in Monte Carlo, an unnamed naïve young woman in her early 20s becomes acquainted with a wealthy Englishman, Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), a widower. After a fortnight of courtship, she agrees to marry him and, after the wedding and honeymoon, accompanies him to his mansion in Cornwall, the beautiful estate Manderley.
Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas), the sinister housekeeper, was profoundly devoted to the first Mrs de Winter, Rebecca, who died in a boating accident about a year before Maxim and the second Mrs de Winter met. She continually attempts to undermine Mrs. de Winter (Lily James) psychologically, subtly suggesting to her that she will never attain the beauty, urbanity, and charm her predecessor possessed. Whenever Mrs. de Winter attempts to make changes at Manderley, Mrs. Danvers describes how Rebecca ran it when she was alive. Each time Mrs. Danvers does this, she implies that Mrs. de Winter lacks the experience and knowledge necessary for running an important estate. Cowed by Mrs. Danvers' imposing manner and the other members of West Country society's unwavering reverence for Rebecca, Mrs. de Winter becomes isolated.
Mrs. de Winter is soon convinced that Maxim regrets his impetuous decision to marry her and is still deeply in love with the seemingly perfect Rebecca. The climax occurs at Manderley's annual costume ball. Mrs. Danvers manipulates Mrs. de Winter into wearing a replica of the dress shown in a portrait of one of the house's former inhabitants - hiding the fact that Rebecca wore the same costume to much acclaim shortly before her death. Mrs. de Winter has a drummer announce her entrance using the name of the lady in the portrait: Caroline de Winter. When Mrs. de Winter shows Maxim the dress, he angrily orders her to change.
