(2022) (Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: A detective tries to solve a murder related to a fictional murder mystery whodunit.
It's 1953 and Agatha Christie's "Mousetrap" is enjoying a successful run in London's West End theater district with actors Richard "Dickie'' Attenborough (HARRIS DICKINSON) and his wife Sheila Sim (PEARL CHANDA) among those in the cast of the whodunit thriller. With the show celebrating its 100th performance, it's about to be made into a movie, with sleazy Hollywood filmmaker Leo Köpernic (ADRIEN BRODY) set to direct.
But when he ends up murdered, it's up to alcoholic Inspector Stoppard (SAM ROCKWELL) to solve the case, although he's been saddled with young and over-eager Constable Stalker (SAOIRSE RONAN) as his rookie partner. Beyond Richard and Sheila, the suspects -- or potential future victims -- include producer John Woolf (REECE SHEARSMITH), screenwriter Mervyn Cocker-Norris (DAVID OYELOWO), theater impresario Petula Spencer (RUTH WILSON), and even Dennis the usher (CHARLIE COOPER).
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or quirky murder-mystery whodunits.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For some violence/bloody images and a sexual reference.
