Becca by Nancy Webb
Becca is a contemporary queer interpretation of Daphne du Maurier’s Gothic novel “Rebecca”. The film, set in present-day Montreal, plays out within the confines of one evening—Max and Daphne fall for one another while a bizarre secret looms. As in du Maurier’s classic, “Becca” works at the intersection of fleeting intimacy and the lingering weight of relationships past.
