Great acting – TERRIBLE DIRECTING
I mourn the movie this could have been in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing. This is below Lifetime-Movie-of-the-week levels of skill. Film-school style camera tracking. Terrible screen wipes. It’s too distracting to make this enjoyable. Shame since the actors are usual great.
Good but not great
Multi-millionaire Aristide Leonides has just died, apparently of a heart attack. Private investigator Charles Hayward is approached by his granddaughter Sophia and asked to investigate his death as she believes he was murdered. Hayward takes on the case and visits the Leonides estate, questioning the family. He discovers that it is far from a simple case – the family is incredibly dysfunctional and nothing is as it seems.
Decent, though not great, adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel. Good setup with a fair amount of intrigue and mystery. Solid performances from a cast that includes Glenn Close, Julian Sands, Terrence Stamp and Gillian Anderson. Great work by 13 year old Honor Kneafsey as Josephine – she almost steals the show.
However, after a solid start, the intrigue doesn’t get built on very well and the middle-to-end part drags a bit. Even more disappointing, the ending feels very rushed and out of the blue.
Another negative is the performance of Christina Hendricks as Brenda. I know she is supposed to be a femme fatale but she didn’t have to try to sound like Marilyn Monroe on helium. Way overdone and quite irritating.
