Rian Johnson (Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) injects fresh magic into a beloved genre with a film that’s as sharp as the murder weapon. The progeny of murder-mystery novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) have been living off him for years. When he turns up dead it seems no-one has a motive for killing the golden goose – can debonair ‘Kentucky-fried’ PI Benoit Blanc (Craig) solve the mystery? Johnson’s impeccably written and designed crime caper is full of unexpected twists and turns from start to finish.
