An all-star whodunit and a movie made as protest art against police brutality are opening in local theaters during the Thanksgiving holiday.
When a mystery novelist suddenly dies at his estate, there is no shortage of suspects among his family members for a Southern sleuth (Daniel Craig) who’s hired to investigate in this Agatha Christie-inspired whodunit. There’s no shortage of great cast members, either, with Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Toni Collette and Lakeith Stanfield.
