She will take a lover if she wishes, & not feel guilty. The fact that in the book Ambrose declares himself women-hater and that she didn’t take any money from Ambrose and Phillip render Rachel innocent from poissoning them. He clearly made her out to be a dishonest money hungry liar. I think money Rachael’s motive is secondary to love jealously motives of the other two characters.

Philip led Rachel to her death without being sure of her crimes and therefore deserves to be punished by uncertainty in her absence. So the word of a new My Cousin Rachel coming out seemed promising enough; casting Rachel Weisz as the title character was a brilliant stroke that convinced me there was a good chance the filmmakers knew just what they were doing.

I think the views about this movie fall neatly in a couple of camps. Being single his whole life, Ambrose had never concerned himself with the need for a wife. I feel that all the signs which show that she could have been innocent were just a part of her mask because this is what manipulators do. If she never had this mask on, anyone would have caught her before (in her previous marriages), i.e., even after she dies, Philip is left confused (“Did she? He felt betrayed so he may not have been the villain until provoked at the end. Because Rachel is the woman that “Fell In Love” with Ambrose while he was in Italy. Anyhow, the most important reason I am pro-Rachel is that the vindictive, callow Philip tells Rachel to only “have a care…” She asks “why, of what?” and he says slowly, “Uh, of walking beneath the sun.” How stupid is that?

Yeah, that’s better. And I can’t believe they don’t give Weitz a final dying scene (as in the book & prior movie) to show her puzzled confusion, underscoring the ambiguity. Just because a movie is a period piece doesn’t mean that it can’t be a mental mindjob through and through.
