PG-13 | | Drama, Mystery, Romance
A young Englishman plots revenge against his late cousin's mysterious, beautiful wife, believing her responsible for his death. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
In the DVD commentary director Roger Michell states that they filmed on location in Devon near the Cornwall border, but avoided filming in Cornwall or setting the film there, because the county features largely in the popular period TV drama Poldark (2015) and he wanted to avoid another period drama set in the same location and too close comparison between the two productions.
What are you going to do with her?
Philip: Confront her. Of course, she'll try and bluster her way out of it - with a faint.
Louise: A swoon, theatrically.
Philip: Have hysterics. Isn't that what one expects of Italians.
Louise: Well, she's only half Italian.
For the film's Australian release, the distributor chose to remove some stronger material, such as the use of strong language in order to obtain a PG classification. The uncut version was later classified M without cuts for a DVD/Video release.
