Sunday Cinema - Knives Out

January 12 4:45 to 6:55 pm

Knives Out sharpens old murder-mystery tropes with a keenly assembled suspense outing that makes brilliant use of writer-director Rian Johnson's stellar ensemble.

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 A-list-turned-slay-list party starring Daniel Craig, Toni Collette, Chris Evans and Jamie Lee Curtis. It's fun to watch super-serious actors get to misbehave." - Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post

"Knives Out is a whole lot of fun, intended to keep the audience off-balance right up until the finish." - Brian Lowry, CNN.com

"...balances moral conscience and black humor expertly within the constraints of the murder-mystery genre." - John Wenzel, Denver Post
