Storyline

Biopic of sorts about Agatha Christie, the famed mystery writer. The story is told in flashback and from Christie's point of view at two distinctly different times in her life - one through the sessions she had with her psychiatrist after her famous 11 day disappearance in 1926 and the other through recollections she give at interviews with journalists on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the West End run of her play The Mousetrap. Christie had a free and open childhood, shattered somewhat by the death of her father. As a volunteer nurse, she met her first husband, Archie Christie. Much of the film deals with her disappearance in 1926 which came about following her husband's request for a divorce which would allow him to marry the woman with whom he had been having an affair. Her psychiatrist concluded that she had been in some type of fugue state and that her loss of memory was genuine. She eventually re-married, spending much of her time with in Syria and Iraq with ...

Fantastic!
20 August 2005 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

When I happened upon this DVD at the video store and saw that the charming Olivia Williams was going to be playing the young Agatha Christie, I knew I would like this film - Ms. William's performances in "The Sixth Sense," "Emma," and "Rushmore" had already won me over to her. The film itself does a fine job letting the audience in to the life of the very private mystery writer. Much of the dialog, I understand, was culled from Christie's own autobiographical works. Williams and Anna Massey (who plays Christie in later life) both wonderfully interpret Christie's words with an engaging sensitivity. As for the mystery of Christie's eleven missing days, the creators of this film approach the event with both creativity and respect for this amazing author.
