Here’s everything you need to know for how to stream Rebecca
We may not be able to escape to the gorgeous English coast (or on any vacation for that matter) in 2020, but we now have an opportunity to travel vicariously to the picturesque seaside in the new movie, Rebecca.
The honeymoon phase is short-lived in this film, however, because the title of this modern adaptation refers to the name of a woman who died several years before the start of the story, but who continues to haunt the estate where she once lived.
Based on the timeless 1938 gothic novel by Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca is partly a romance story and partly a suspenseful mystery that follows the journey of a young newlywed who arrives at her husband’s estate only to uncover that things with her marriage — and her husband’s past — are not at all what they seem.
The new Mrs. de Winter finds herself “battling the shadow” of Max’s first wife, Rebecca. And though we learn that Rebecca died in an accident, it seems as though the story is much more complicated, and that she is still very much a presence around the house.
How to stream Rebecca, with the release date, cast, trailer, and more
Starting October 21, you can stream Rebecca on Netflix, and it may be the perfect addition to your list of movies to cross of your list by Halloween. In addition to its streaming release, the movie is also available in some theaters nationwide based on safety guidelines.
The film stars Armie Hammer as Maxim de Winter, Lily James as Mrs. de Winter and Kristin Scott Thomas as Mrs. Danvers, the head housekeeper of the estate who isn’t exactly willing to welcome the new Mrs. de Winter with open arms.
