Knives Out

2 Hr. 10 Min.
Screening format: DCP

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in Knives Out, a 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.


"Knives Out is a kick. By the time it was finally revealed whodunit, I just wanted to start over and play again."
- Seattle Times
"Director Rian Johnson assembles an all-star cast for this modern and humorous mystery that rejiggers all the tropes and trappings of a whodunit in a fun and frothy lens."
- Arizona Republic
"Writer-director Rian Johnson's fizzy Agatha Christie riff Knives Out succeeds as a throwback with more than mere nostalgia on its mind."
- Chicago Tribune
