Movie: Rebecca

In standard Masterpiece Theater style, we have another classic British aristocratic drama in the Jane Austin / Emily Bronte tradition. Lower-class girl finds herself romantically entangled with a fabulously wealthy man, and must endure fancy clothes, fancier accoutrements, palacial residence, formal balls, aristocratic snobs & twits, strange servants, and her man's dark secret which they together face, heroically overcome and humbly suffer the tragic consequences of, abiding in the deep love they share after all.
