Knives Out - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, 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. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

MOVIE REVIEW

The screening I attended for Knives Out was preceded by a plea from director Rian Johnson to not spoil the whodunit in his whodunit, an odd request in hindsight given that neither the mystery nor the ultimate culprit are all that surprising. Knives Out is a creative, craftily sculpted piece of entertainment, but its slight mystery keeps it from being anything more than a passing fancy.
