In this classic Agatha Christie detective story, former diplomat Charles Hayward (Max Irons) has returned from Cairo to London to become a private detective. When Aristide Leonides (Gino Picciano), a wealthy and ruthless tycoon, is poisoned in his own bed, Detective Hayward is invited to solve the crime.
Interesting adaption of Ms Christies Crooked House which kept me guessing until about 80% through when what I thought was a crazy assumption as to the murderer began unravel. Good to look at the, period shots and clothing were spot on, and the cast of well know British actors joined by Glenn Close played their roles to perfection.
Tried to watch this twice. Fell asleep both times around 10-15mins in. Pretty boring affair. Glenn Close was wasted. Poor script. Unengaging. Music and scoring non-existent as far as I could [hear]. Avoid unless needing a sleep relaxant.
