A stellar ensemble cast – including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon and Christopher Plummer – make murder mysteries fun again in acclaimed director Rian Johnson’s (Brick, Looper) clever, stylish and masterful modern-day tribute to the work of Agatha Christie.
When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found dead at his estate after just celebrating his 85th birthday, debonair detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) is called in to investigate. As Blanc sifts through the evidence, he soon realises that everyone is a suspect: from Thrombey’s devoted staff to his dysfunctional family, all of whom were at the mansion for their patriarch’s birthday party – and all of whom have a motive for wanting him dead.
