Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures (TV Movie 2004) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • 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 archaeologist-husband Max Mallowan, to whom she was married for 46 years. She continued to write eventually producing 86 novels with an estimated 2 billion copies in print.

  • In December 1926, best-selling mystery writer Agatha Christie suddenly vanishes, leaving her husband Archie with no clue as to her whereabouts. After ten days, she is discovered by a journalist staying in a hotel in Yorkshire under a false name. Subsequently she remembers (or claims to remember) nothing about her activities during this time. She visits a psychiatrist, who uses hypnosis in an attempt to get to the bottom of her apparent amnesia. She tells him about her early life: her middle-class childhood, experiences during World War One and courtship by the charming but faithless Archie.
