Genre Mystery Drama
Director Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Looper) assembles an all-star cast in Knives Out, an intelligent whodunit about a famed southern detective who joins forces with local police to investigate a group of eccentric suspects following the murder of a wealthy crime novelist.
On the morning after his 85th birthday party, wealthy crime novelist Harlan Thrombrey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead on his estate. Famed Southern detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is enlisted on the case and suspects foul play.
Everyone is a suspect and, as the reading of the will draws closer and the investigation heats up, Harlan’s money-grubbing family begins to be revealed as far more conniving and competitive than they first appear. When Marta (Ana de Armas), Thrombrey’s South American caregiver, finds herself entangled in the mystery, it becomes clear that no secrets are safe within the household — not even her own.
