When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's disfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.Written by
Chris Evans got his dog, Dodger, a sweater that looks just like the one he wore in the film "Knives Out." Evans wore a white cable knit sweater in the movie and it quickly became an internet sensation. See more »
SPOILER: Blanc explains that after Marta's confession Ransom knew that she hadn't actually given Harlan an overdose of morphine, but that cannot be. After all, she herself hadn't even realized she had automatically switched back the vials so it couldn't have come out in her confession.
Marta would have explained that she had given Harlan a 100 mg dose of what she afterwards saw came from the morphine vial. Since Ransom had switched the drugs, he knew that she had given Harlan 100 mg of Toradol, the correct dosage - this is why he afterwards sought to destroy the toxicology lab and Harlan's reports, which, when combined with the autopsy report, would prove that Harlan got the correct dosage and thereby prove Marta's innocence.

Hated Last Jedi. Loved this.
As a fan of mysteries (Sherlock Holmes, Poirot, Columbo, Monk, Psych.etc.) I was thrilled to see someone making a classic style whodunnit...and the cast! Figure you can't go wrong. Well I enjoyed it & while the cast all have time to shine it is Daniel Craig with his Southern drawl & especially Ana de Armas that steal the show. For anyone keeping away because they hated The Last Jedi...I agree, it was my least favourite of all the Star Wars films, but this is a well written film that was well acted and I can only hope this will inspire others to reinvigorate the murder mystery genre.
