Knives Out

Knives Out (12a)

Knives Out is a glorious return to the ensemble murder mystery. Director Rian Johnson brings together a spectacular cast including Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Toni Colette and Jamie Lee Curtis in this witty, stylish whodunnit where everyone is a suspect.

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. Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.

And the critics say…

“What a kick to watch whip-smart director Rian Johnson shake the cobwebs off the whodunit genre and turn it intro terrific, twisted, all-star fun that actually does keep you guessing until the deliciously slippery end. .”
Peter Travers,  Rolling Stone

“Johnson, on temporary sabbatical from the Star Wars universe after The Last Jedi, has used his time well. Murder he wrote – and what a writer he is.”
Charlotte O’Sullivan,  London Evening Standard

“It’s an ingeniously constructed film, which is thoroughly modern in its language and filled with so many twists it will make your head spin.”
Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent

“There is some savvy subtext in Rian Johnson’s writing, about old money and Trump-era values, but mainly this is exceptional cinematic froth, and murder at its most mirthful.”
Kevin Maher, The Times
