A fun, modern-day murder mystery paying tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie, from acclaimed writer-director Ryan Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and quite charming Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is 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. Star-studded with an impressive cast, this ‘contemporary whodunnit’ film is full of unexpected twists and turns from start to finish.
