Knives Out is a classic comedic whodunit murder-mystery about the death of best-selling crime novelist Harlan Thrombey. As suspects under investigation by the “famous” private detective Benoit Blanc, the Thrombey family are an eccentric bunch of misfits portrayed by an equally oddball ensemble cast. Anonymously hired to investigate what police believe was a suicide, Blanc is unravels the many plot twists and turns as he resolves the case in this amusing film (Klaus Ming February 2020).
