News & Interviews for Crooked House
Critic Reviews for Crooked House
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.
Crooked House feels as lifeless as the corpse at its center.
The superb cast provides mild pleasures, as do some aspects of the elaborate mystery itself.
All in all, a hugely enjoyable, sumptuous adaptation that, while never attempting to break the Christie mould, imbued the story with a pleasingly contemporary feel.
Audience Reviews for Crooked House
The Agatha Christie murder mystery Crooked House is a classic crime thriller. When her grandfather is poisoned Sophia de Haviland hires her former lover and private investigator Charles Hayward to look into the case before the murderer can cover their tracks, and it becomes a public scandal. Featuring Christina Hendricks, Glenn Close, and Gillian Anderson, the cast is pretty solid, and newcomer Stefanie Martini gives an especially strong performance. Also, the script does a good job at building intrigue and suspense. Still, there are some pacing issues, and at times the plot can be a bit confusing. Yet while it has some problems, Crooked House delivers a dark and chilling murder mystery.
