Plot summary

What is Rebecca movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Rebecca" movie plot summary.

While working as a companion to Mrs. Van Hopper (Ann Dowd), a rich American woman on holiday in Monte Carlo, an unnamed naΓ―ve young woman in her early 20s becomes acquainted with a wealthy Englishman, Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), a recent widower. After a fortnight of courtship, she agrees to marry him and, after the wedding and honeymoon, accompanies him as the new Mrs. de Winter (Lily James) to his coastal mansion in Cornwall, England, the beautiful estate Manderley.
She meets Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas), the stern housekeeper, who was profoundly devoted to the first Mrs de Winter, Rebecca, who died in a boating accident the previous year. Interactions with the staff and Maxim's friends also reinforce that Rebecca was unreachably charming and beloved, particularly by Maxim, who was especially affected by her death. Mrs. Danvers, in particular, seems to constantly emphasize the new Mrs. de Winter's inferiority by comparison. When Rebecca's cousin, Jack Favell (Sam Riley), comes to visit while Maxim is away, he tells her that Mrs. Danvers invited him. Learning of his visit infuriates Maxim, who previously banned Favell from the grounds, and he accuses Mrs. de Winter of infidelity. Mrs. de Winter confronts Mrs. Danvers for conspiring against her by inviting Favell and demands her resignation. Mrs. Danvers insists Favell was lying and explains her coldness as grief over Rebecca, whom she cared for since childhood. Sympathetically, Mrs. de Winter relents and asks that they work together from now on.
The two begin working amiably together to run the household, with Mrs. Danvers assisting Mrs. de Winter in reviving the famed tradition of the Manderley Costume Ball. Mrs. Danvers suggests that Mrs. de Winter choose a replica of the dress shown in a portrait of one of the de Winter ancestors for her costume. The night of the party, Mrs. de Winter excitedly has a drummer announce her entrance using the name of the lady in the portrait: Caroline de Winter. The guests are shocked and Maxim is furious, demanding that she change. Humiliated and confused, Mrs. de Winter learns that Rebecca wore the same dress the previous year. Realizing that Mrs. Danvers had manipulated her all along and believing that Maxim now regrets their marriage, she flees the party. Mrs. Danvers appears and reveals her contempt for the new Mrs. de Winter and her low station, believing she is trying to replace Rebecca. She reveals her deep, unhealthy obsession with the dead woman and states that Mrs. de Winter will never attain the beauty, urbanity, and charm her predecessor possessed. She tries to convince Mrs. de Winter, in her humiliation, to commit suicide by encouraging her to jump from the window. However, she is thwarted at the last moment by the disturbance occasioned by a nearby shipwreck brought up by the storm outside. The ship is Rebecca's and her decomposed body is discovered still on board.
