On his 85th birthday, acclaimed crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead in his room with his throat slit. Just as authorities are about to dismiss the tragedy as suicide due to the lack of evidence to prove otherwise, Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) arrives at the scene to conduct his own investigation. Soon, it is revealed that all of Thrombey’s family have a reason to murder the family’s patriarch. Will Marta (Ana de Armas), the dead man’s caregiver and most trusted confidante, be able to help identify who the killer is? Written and directed by Rian Johnson.
