Agatha and the Truth of Murder (2018)
I was expecting something similar to the typical BBC/PBS murder mystery and instead I found it to be something else entirely. A nifty blending of drama and murder mystery into something truly special. I say this because while much of the film is focused on the typical Christie trope of bringing all the suspects together, pretty much the first third deals with Christie, her writer's block and her failing marriage to her husband. Until we are in the final hour we only get a taste of the murder and the mystery, just enough to make us want more.
I really liked this film a great deal and highly recommended it to anyone stuck inside.
This film is hit video-on-demand services April 7 (and it is on Netflix), and DVD from April 21, 2020
