A fictional account of the real life, eleven day, never explained 1926 disappearance of famed murder mystery writer Agatha Christie is presented. On a cold winter day, her damaged car with her expensive fur coat is found abandoned at the side of a country road. While the authorities initially suspect that she could have committed suicide, her pompous husband, Col. Archibald Christie, who is less than cooperative with the authorities, is adamant that she is still alive. What he doesn't tell them is that he recently asked her for a divorce so that he could marry his secretary, Miss Nancy Neele. Although the divorce request was not a total surprise since she knew of the extramarital affair, Mrs. Christie still did not want to grant him the request since she still loves him. Concurrently, American newspaper columnist Wally Stanton was scheduled to conduct an interview with Mrs. Christie.

When Agatha strikes the black ball on the pool table with the cue ball, the black ball banks off four rails and is on a path that would clearly take it to a point somewhere to the right of the lower left corner pocket and the ball comes to almost a complete stop before the cut.

Well, in the past, Sir, there have been rumors in the past that Mrs Christie threatened to kill herself.
Utter rubbish. Servants' gossip.
Col. Archibald Christie:
I dare say you know that my wife is a well known writer of murder mysteries. Poison, intrigue, murder and suicides. It's everyday family small talk.
I see Sir. So you have absolutely no idea what might have happened to her?
Col. Archibald Christie:
I am sure that nothing at all has happened to her. But I would strongly urge you, in your own interest, to call all this off.

A lovely, cunning, brilliantly acted mystery/romance
Wonderfully clever, and extremely well acted by Dustin Hoffman, Vanessa Redgrave.
It's the imaginary tale of what happened during a real-life never explained 11 day disappearance of mystery writer Agatha Christie. Hoffman and Redgrave make a wonderful, quirky pair of almost lovers.
Fun, smart, and quite touching, with gorgeous photography by Vittorio Stoaro.
Finally available on DVD as part of the WB made to order line. So it's pricey, with no extras, and burned to DVD-R, so it may likely last less long than a regular DVD. Still, it's a terrific film, well worth picking up.
