(US, 2017) Director: Kenneth Branagh. Screenplay by Michael Green, based on the novel by Agatha Christie. Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Daisy Ridley.

We hope the fact that Atlantic magazine gave Kenneth Branagh (as Hercule Poirot) 2017’s Worst Mustache Award will make you more, instead of less, eager to see this purely enjoyable Agatha Christie mystery! The intrigue begins as the murderer of a child heiress is found dead – with 12 stab wounds – on the lavish train that sweeps its passengers from Paris to Istanbul. When an avalanche halts the train, the Belgian sleuth has the time to interview a plethora of possible suspects, including a prickly Russian princess (Judi Dench), a religious zealot (Penélope Cruz), a slinky American (Michelle Pfeiffer) and more. 114 min
“In front of and behind the camera, Branagh makes this journey a throwback ride worth taking. All aboard!” – Adam Graham, Detroit News.
