Rian Johnson (Brick, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to Agatha Christie with his new film, a blissfully entertaining whodunnit with a killer cast set on the country estate of the wealthy Thrombey family.
When patriarch and renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead, debonair detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig, free from the permanent frown of James Bond and clearly having the time of his life) is called in.
Interviewing family members and staff it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems with the dysfunctional clan, and Blanc will be pushed to his limits to try and solve the case.
Dir: Rian Johnson
Cast: Toni Collette, Daniel Craig
