The BBC drama Daphne is certain to attract those curious about the British author’s arguably most famous book, Rebecca. This biopic concentrates on a relatively small period of Daphne du Maurier’s life and focuses, very intensely, on the significant relationships with women in her life. It’s a frame story beginning in 1952 and then flashing back to her husband’s returns from WWII. At this point in Daphne’s (Geraldine Somerville) life, she has penned the novel Rebecca (the film doesn’t mention her other, earlier novels to this point) and she and her husband Tommy (Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick “Boy” Browning) have three children. Tommy’s return–built up to be some romantic reunion–turns out to be a disappointment.
