With a fabulous cast, this comedy/crime/ drama/ tells the story of a detective who investigates the death of a patriarch of an eccentric, combative family.
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.
An entertainment that’s as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for. It’s tempting to call it the sort of movie they don’t make any more, but they didn’t make all that many way back when, because it’s really hard to pull off a production of such startling quality. If there’s a false note from start to finish I must have been laughing or gasping when it sounded.— Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
Pound for pound, actor for actor, laugh for laugh, Knives Out may be the most entertaining movie of the year.— Ty Burr, Boston Globe
The art of a cinematic murder mystery is to make the act of putting clues together seem suspenseful and worth watching. In the hands of Craig at his most gleeful, de Armas at her career best, and Johnson oozing love for the genre, Knives Out rises splendidly to the task.—David Sims, The Atlantic
A delicious throwback to the all-star whodunit, this juicy comedy thriller is a treat from start to finish.—David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
