Sometime in the 1920s, a young woman, acting as a lady's companion to a wealthy woman on holiday in Monte Carlo, comes across the suave Maxim de Winter. Both of them fall in love and decide to get married. Before long, both of them travel to Manderley, the estate of de Winter. However, the woman has to contend with the sinister motives of Mrs. Danvers, the housekeeper, and battle the long shadow cast on Manderley by the memories of Maxim's first wife, Rebecca.
Directed by Ben Wheatley, this is an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's 1938 literary classic. Lily James stars as the young woman who later becomes Mrs. de Winter, and Armie Hammer plays Maxim de Winter, while Kristin Scott Thomas steps into the shoes of Mrs. Danvers. Other cast members include Ann Dowd, Keeley Hawes, Sam Riley, Tom Goodman-Hill, Ben Crompton and others.
Rebecca comes to Netflix worldwide on October 21, 2020.
