QUICK TAKE:
Dramatic Thriller: A world-renowned detective tries to solve a murder that takes place onboard a luxury paddle steamer that's headed down the Nile River.
PLOT:

It's 1937 and famed private detective Hercule Poirot (KENNETH BRANAGH) is enjoying a variety of desserts at a nightclub where young Rosalie Otterbourne (LETITIA WRIGHT) demands upfront money before her jazz singer aunt, Salome (SOPHIE OKONEDO) performs. Rosalie is her manager and previously went to school with Linnet Ridgeway-Doyle (GAL GADOT), a wealthy socialite who's arrived to meet her friend Jacqueline de Bellefort (EMMA MACKEY). The latter is pleased to announce that she's to marry the dashing Simon Doyle (ARMIE HAMMER), but once he and Linnet lock eyes and dance together, it's love at first sight.

Not long after that, those two are getting married in Egypt with a honeymoon cruise down the Nile River to follow. Among those invited to attend are Linnet's cousin and family lawyer, Andrew Katchadourian (ALI FAZAL); her rich godmother, Marie Van Schuyler (JENNIFER SAUNDERS) and her longtime nurse and companion, Mrs. Bowers (DAWN FRENCH); aristocratic doctor Linus Windlesham (RUSSELL BRAND) who was once romantically involved with Linnet; Poirot's young friend, Bouc (TOM BATEMAN) and his romantically skeptical mother, Euphemia (ANNETTE BENING); and Linnet's maid, Louise Bourget (ROSE LESLIE).

Joining them is Poirot himself who's on vacation in Egypt when he runs into the wedding party. Linnet asks him to accompany them as personal protection from her former friend turned obsessive stalker, Jacqueline, who's shown up for the festivities. Once on the river, it's not long before someone is murdered and it's up to Poirot to interrogate everyone for possible motives and then identify the killer.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For violence, some bloody images, and sexual material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
