It’s a story of privilege and class when a family must come to grips with their wealthy patriarch’s death by suicide and what that means for their pampered lifestyle.
Daniel Craig plays the Sherlock Holmes private investigator Benoit Blanc, who doesn’t even know who hired him (part of the mystery). While all the family members seem innocent enough, each has some level of motive for having killed Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) by a faked suicide.
The plot keeps thickening as Harlan’s nurse, Marta (Ana de Armas), is named as sole beneficiary of the entire estate, pissing off the entire family.
What I really loved about the movie is how it kind of gave away the mystery at the beginning, only to flip that around as the story progressed. In fact, I read a review that I thought had given away the entire plot, but I was completely surprised and giddy as the truth unfolded before my eyes.
