Sometimes the life of an author is more interesting than her subjects. While Daphne Du Maurier's REBECCA is one of the most appreciated works in English letters, her secret love life was full of difficulties and trauma that certainly informed, and might even be more fascinating than, her fiction. This dramatic interpretation of her life is based on letters, and on biographies that examine her forbidden love affairs with high-society figure Ellen Doubleday and the actress Gertrude Lawrence. It's a story that can rival anything Du Maurier ever invented and one that will transport viewers back to an era that was as sensuous as it was repressed.
