Ben Wheatley is a director whose name kept being thrown around, but every film of his left me cold. And then one day, something clicked for me, and then he became one of my favourite filmmakers working today. Seeing Happy New Year, Colin Burstead was one of my favourite experiences in a theatre. So, to see Wheatley adapt the Rebecca novel written by Daphne du Maurier. Which was previously adapted by Alfred Hitchcock. I haven’t seen the Academy Award Best Picture winning film, so I was even more excited to watch Rebecca as blindly as one can.
