First published in 1934, Murder on the Orient Express is one of the most popular works from the grand Dame of crime fiction, Agatha Christie. Previously adapted in 1974 by Sidney Lumet, this labyrinthine tale of mystery and murder aboard a luxury train has been reimagined by Kenneth Branagh for a modern audience. He also plays Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot, who must solve the mystery of how an American art dealer was stabbed to death in a locked cabin.
With only a handful of clues and over a dozen suspects, Poirot’s incredible powers of deduction are put to the test. Branagh’s take on this classic whodunit is wonderfully cinematic and delighfully old fashioned, featuring the kind of starry cast that populated the Christie films of the ’70s and ’80s. Suspects include Judi Dench, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer and Willem Dafoe. And yes, there is butler!
