Knives Out is continuing its impressive festival run with an appearance at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Director/writer Rian Johnson is no stranger to TIFF, having two of his films shown there already (The Brothers Bloom, Looper), and he’s returning for a third with his new “whodunnit” starring Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis and Toni Collette, among many others.
Knives Out follows the aftermath of a tumultuous family after the death of its patriarch on the morning of his 85th birthday party. The entire family is under investigation, and everyone is a suspect. The detective in charge, Benoit Blanc (Craig), muddles his way through this conniving and manipulative family as the reading of the will draws near.
This film is dazzling critics with its sharp wit and fun, intelligent twists and turns, so add this to your November must-see list.
