Knives Out

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in Knives Out, a fun, modern-day murder mystery 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. 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. The all-star ensemble includes Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, and Michael Shannon. (PG-13, 130 mins)

“An entertainment that’s as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“‘Knives Out’ deserves to be explored as a world of its own, as Johnson balances moral conscience and black humor expertly within the constraints of the murder-mystery genre.” – John Wenzel, Denver Post
