Knives Out (12A)
19th December 2019
When a family gathering goes horribly wrong, three detectives are sent to unravel the puzzling mystery behind the death of one of the guests. Rian Johnson directs Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, and LaKeith Stanfield, who star in this modern murder mystery that will keep you guessing throughout.
A mystery is brewing at the Thrombrey residence as wealthy family patriarch Harlan (Christopher Plummer) celebrates his 85th birthday surrounded by his estranged family, brought together just for the big day.
While socialising merrily, however, all the guests and house staff are quickly made aware of some troubling news. Learning of the shocking and sudden death of the elderly Harlan, all are equally horrified by the confusing turn of events, and equally baffled as to who the culprit is.
Sent to uncover the grisly truth behind the puzzling murder, keen-eyed Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), with help from detectives Trooper Wagner (Noah Segan) and Troy Archer (LaKeith Stanfield), begins to work his way through the dysfunctional family, ruling nobody out. Anyone could have committed this foul atrocity, and everyone is a suspect.
Directed by Rian Johnson (Breaking Bad, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), this thrilling modern take on the classic whodunit murder mystery stars Chris Evans (Avengers: Endgame, Gifted, Playing it Cool), Daniel Craig (Spectre, Logan Lucky, Layer Cake), LaKeith Stanfield (Sorry to Bother You, Death Note, Short Term 12), and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, An Acceptable Loss, Spare Parts).
Running time: 2hrs 10mins
A lovely film, a modern take on the old fashioned whodunnit. Brilliantly filmed and acted, it keeps you guessing right to the end. Such a shame that it was only screened for two days, please bring it back so that others can enjoy it!
