Reel Discussion at Richmond library, Summer Reading Edition movie: 'Murder on the Orient Express'
Richmond Memorial Library will host Reel Discussions – Summer Reading Edition at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 23rd.
Come view the movie and join us for a group discussion afterward. This month’s movie is the “Murder on the Orient Express.”
Having concluded a case, detective Hercule Poirot settles into what he expects will be a relaxing journey home aboard the Orient Express. But when an unpopular billionaire is murdered en route, Poirot takes up the case, and everyone on board the famous train is a suspect. Using an avalanche blocking the tracks to his advantage, Poirot gradually realizes that many of the passengers have revenge as a motive, and he begins to home in on the culprit.
This is the 2017 version of the Agatha Christie classic murder mystery, starring Kenneth Branagh as Poirot, and Penelope Cruz, Willem Defoe, Johnny Depp, Judi Dench and Michelle Pfeiffer. Branagh also directs the film, which features gorgeous cinematic vistas a la David Lean, exquisite costumes, and impeccable acting.
