About the Movie

In Agatha Christie’s most twisted tale, the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch is investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather's murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets. On the sprawling estate, amidst a poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy in a truly crooked house, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man's widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The superb cast provides mild pleasures, as do some aspects of the elaborate mystery itself. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Dec 21, 2017

Fresh: "Crooked House" keeps you guessing, right up to its shocking conclusion (of which Christie was especially proud, naming it a personal favorite among her extensive oeuvre). – Peter Debruge, Variety, Dec 8, 2017

Fresh: Irons more than holds his own at the center of this swirling mystery, and Martini proves an enchanting leading lady, but the real draws are Close and Anderson, who bring a ferocious zest to their over-the-top characters. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Jan 9, 2018

Rotten: A visual treat but a less-than-tantalizing mystery. – Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 22, 2017

Glenn Close exceptional

This film was interesting, not only for its storyline but for the quirky cinematography and brilliant cast of eclectic characters played by mostly notable actors. Standouts include Terrance Stamp, Gillian Anderson and Christina Hendricks — but the true star of this film is Glenn Close as Lady Edith. As a lingering character, quietly present as she is equally absent, the subtlety of her talent is showcased here. Love this! The ending however... left me wondering where the rest of the film was.

Stylish dark thriller

An elegant take on a twisted tale by the greatest of mystery writers. Crooked House is beautifully filmed and set in a gorgeous manor house that will remind you of Downton Abbey–but much darker. (The screenplay is by Julian Fellowes, who also wrote Downton.) The cast is great, led by Glenn Close as the forbidding Lady Edith and Max Irons and Stefani Martini as a clever star-crossed couple, with excellent cameos by Gillian Anderson and Christina Hendricks.

Excellent!

Agatha Christie is the best! Really good movie!
