Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in this fresh, 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.
With an all-star ensemble cast joining Craig and Plummer including Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, LaKeith Stanfield and Jaeden Martell, Knives Out is a fun, witty and stylish whodunnit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.
