Tom George directs Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan and Ruth Wilson in this Agatha Christie spoof murder mystery where two mismatched cops investigate a killing in London’s theatreworld.
Cosy crime with a strangely subdued Sam Rockwell. And who wants that? Saoirse sparkles but everything else is diluted Marple made to look like cheap Wes Anderson. Anyone want to explain the stylistic choice of the pointless split screens other than boredom in the editing suite? Get the feeling this has every element it would need to work but needed a far surer hand at the helm. Almost dozed off a few times.
