The death of an eccentric family’s patriarch (played by Christopher Plummer) brings Knives Out.

The Oscar-nominated, Agatha Christie-style of classic murder mystery arrives Friday, Feb. 28, at The Tull Family Theater and screens through Thursday, March 5.

“A sleek game of cat and mouse, Knives Out begins the hunt with a mysterious pool of blood and ends, well, telling wouldn’t be fair,” teases the New York Times.

“An entertainment that’s as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for,” declares the Wall Street Journal.

“What a kick to watch whip-smart director Rian Johnson shake the cobwebs off the whodunit genre and turn it into terrific, twisted, all-star fun that actually does keep you guessing until the deliciously slippery end,” declares Rolling Stone.

“There’s a great deal of lively and funny shenanigans with poisons and antidotes, and Johnson delivers a stab of cheerful cynicism,” says the UK’s Guardian.

The film features an ensemble cast with familiar faces like Daniel Craig, LaKeith Stanfield, Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis and Don Johnson.
