Early 1970s. Four strangers check in at the El Royale Hotel. The hotel is deserted, staffed by a single desk clerk. Some of the new guests' reasons for being there are less than innocent and some are not who they appear to be.
Six strangers, (Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cailee Spaeny and Lewis Pullman) each with their own secrets, meet at the El Royale hotel of Lake Tahoe. Taking place over one night, alliances are made and secrets are revealed.
Miles mentions a guest brought a "feral wolf" into a room, but feral means a domesticated animal returned to the wild; or simply a wild untamed animal. The wolf he describes is definitely tame. See more »
You like good, old school crime/mystery movie? El Royale is the motel you need to check-in!
Just watched it in cinema alone (I work there), for months I've been waiting for this movie to get my hands/eyes on. An I was not disappointed - it was old school, dusty crime thriller with an all-star cast.
Great music, great cinematography (hotel looks great), great acting, every character/actor has his/her moment in movie. This one I will watch again for sure, I was really entertained by all the actors performances, music and movie overall.
This will be a great addition to Blu-ray collection when it comes out.
If you are into mystery/crime/thriller with good actor performances - you're in for a treat! Go and see this one on big screen - you won't be disappointed.
