At the Movies: Murder on the Orient Express

Nov 30, 2017

Murder on the Orient Express boasts a bravura turn as Hercule Poirot by Kenneth Branagh, who directs the star-studded extravaganza that is a remake of the 1974 movie directed by Sidney Lumet and is also based on the 1934 novel by Agatha Christie.

Along for the ride in the 2017 version, in addition to Branagh, are Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley. Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews the Crime-Mystery film.
