    Synopsis

    When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. (Lionsgate, The film distributor).

    This film is a modern twist on an ‘Agatha Christie’ style whodunit in which all the characters have a motive for murder!

    Why we like it

    We really enjoyed the film which has some excellent, and at times comedic, character performances from the ensemble cast. The plot is very well constructed with unexpected twists and turns that kept us absorbed until the very end.
