Adapted by Daphne du Maurier from her novel
Directed by Michael Emmitt
A secret haunts the halls of Manderley, where millionaire Maxim de Winter has taken a young bride to be the new mistress of his estate. But not everyone is pleased with the new arrangement, and when a dark secret is unearthed at the bottom of the sea, it shakes the very foundation of the household. Made famous by the classic Hitchcock film, Spark’s look into the dark side of memory promises to be just as unnerving as the original.
