Knives Out
starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Toni Colette, and more

A tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie and a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.

This movie kept me hooked the whole time I watched it and rewatched it! The cast does an amazing job and, for a murder mystery, there are still moments of sweetness and humor. The set design is CRAZY good and I wished that I had a throne made of knives in my house. If you love mysteries and haven't seen this, you need to!
