Smart and sophisticated whodunit
This isn't the kind of movie where you sit back and let it wash over you; you are rewarded best if you pay careful attention even to casual clues skimming by. There are, of course, red herrings and red herrings on the red herrings, but that is part of the fun, and if you have paid attention, it all comes out at the end. The acting is terrific on every single count, as perhaps it should be with an all-star cast of British actors. The movie may be too sophisticated for many who are in the Mission Impossible crowd (though I confess to loving the latest installment there), but if you are up for thinking during your movie, this one is for you.
