Rachel Weisz tackles Daphne du Maurier’s enigmatic heroine in My Cousin Rachel, while BLAME! sees Netflix release a feature-length adaptation of a long-running Japanese manga series.

He also tries to explain how he handles movie fan frustration when friends don’t pick up on a film in quite the same way. Thanks for your emails and tweets!
