Synopsis

Everyone plots against everyone else in this aptly titled, tongue-in-cheek homage to the murder mystery. With its gothic-style mansion, bogus aristocratic protagonists, and a murder victim who happens to be an eccentric mystery writer, Knives Out is an affectionate bow to the British master of the genre, Agatha Christie. Even the quirky private detective who tries unconventional methods to unravel the intrigues of a hopelessly estranged publishing family, is played by an Englishman (Daniel Craig), though he speaks with the unmistakable drawl of the American South. The top-drawer performers in this excellently written film make every effort to explore the abyss of greed and selfishness in the most entertaining way. And of course, the laugh is on the loser.
