Based on personal letters and biographies, the film charts the story of Daphne's unrequited passion for the beautiful and glamorous American heiress, Ellen Doubleday, and how the play she wrote about this forbidden desire led her to a life-changing love affair with the irreverent, fun-loving actress Gertrude Lawrence.
Daphne called herself 'a boy in a box' and this revealing drama shows how Daphne's incendiary love life informed the writing of her compelling stories.
Regardless of if you believe these affairs are factual or ficticious, this is a well written script with a fantastic cast. Read morePublished 3 months ago by W.H. Dean
Characterisation wonderful, especially the actress who took the title role. Memorable performances and 'feel' of the era excellent.Published 5 months ago by Elizabeth Cooke
Janet McTeer does it again. She seems to have a gift for playing this type of role and this is a very enjoyable look at the real life of a famous writer.Published 6 months ago by Rachel
Well acted and entertaining but ultimately rather tame glimpse into the supposedly secret life of Daphne Du Maurier. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Ms Sally Manderson
I bought this because my daughter is doing an in-depth study of 'Rebecca' so thought a little background of the writer might be useful. She wasn't disapponted.Published 21 months ago by Maureen Jenner

I am a fan of the writer but thought this film whilst probably accurate was a bit slow.
I dont think its one I would watch again.
