Knives Out

Sunday night after our hike, Sharon and I watched Knives Out on the AppleTv. The film received a Best Original Screenplay nomination at the 92nd Academy Awards. It was also selected by the American Film Institute and the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2019.

The whodunit follows a family gathering gone awry. After the family patriarch's death, a master detective is called to investigate. The film features an ensemble cast, including: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stansfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer.

When the movie ended, Sharon said "that was horrific..." I liked it more than she did; I would give it a C+ or a B-. After the rave reviews that we heard about the movie lately, we were both more than a little disappointed. In particular, Sharon was not fond of Daniel Craig's southern accent. I read that they are going to make a sequel?!?
