Murder on the Orient Express (12A) + meal
Director Kenneth Branagh
Starring: Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer
Drama, Mystery | UK/USA | 2017
1 hr 54 mins
This was a smash hit for director Kenneth Branagh in 2017 that proved (along with the inventive Knives Out) that the public still have a thirst for a good whodunit. This is the matriarch of all whodunits, Agatha Christie, and her most famous tale of intrigue aboard a luxury passenger train. Branagh himself is a slightly melancholy and restrained Poirot, ruminating behind a bobby-dazzler of a moustache. Like the 70s version with Albert Finney this pairs a pan-generational cast of big-name suspects (Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley) with extravagant period detail to make a gripping crowd-pleaser. Bet you don’t remember every twist!
