Murder on the Orient Express

From the novel by Agatha Christie, the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branaugh directs and stars as Hercule Poirot and the stellar cast includes Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, and Willem Dafoe. (PG-13, 114 mins)

“Despite the bright cinematography, there’s something quaint and comforting about this film and its brand of old-fashioned storytelling, where coincidences are extremely likely, everyone somehow knows a countess, and a man puts honor above all else.” – April Wolfe, Village Voice

“Handsomely staged, exceptionally well-cast, and reasonably faithful, Branagh has revived Murder on the Orient Express in a highly pleasing fashion.” – Blake Goble, Consequence of Sound
