  • 00:00:00 Rebecca is a moody and stylish thriller that tells the story of a young, working-class bride who is suddenly elevated to the upper class after a whirlwind romance. Some of the best stories ever told have roots in real life, and Rebecca is no different. In 1932, young Daphne du Maurier met Frederick Browning, a decorated officer in the British Army, and they quickly fell in love. By 1938, the novel was done, and du Maurier released Rebecca to the world. It was an immediate hit, selling double the estimated number of copies at launch, and it hasn't been out of print since. In 2019, the BBC named it one of the "most inspiring" novels ever. Lily James (Cinderella, Downton Abbey) stars as the young Mrs. de Winter, Armie Hammer (The Social Network, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) portrays Mr. de Winter, Kristin Scott Thomas (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The English Patient) plays Mrs. Danvers, Tom Goodman-Hill (Humans, The Office) plays Beatrice Lacy, Keeley Hawes (Ashes to Ashes, The Leftovers) plays Mrs. de Winter's house
