"You all love twisting the knife into one another." - Benoit Blanc

This was an engaging whodunit screenplay that was unpredictable and a very good read. Famous novelist, Harlan Thrombey commits suicide leaving many unanswered questions and more red herrings to mention in the screenplay. In walks in the noted Detective Benoit Blanc to solve the case.

"The family is truly desperate. And when people get desperate, the knives come out." -Benoit Blanc

The Thrombey clan were a terrible group once they

Bless, the descriptions:
How you doing kiddo.
Linda is 60ish, well put together, sharp and steely eyed. She dresses and speaks with just a little more sharpness than any situation she's in requires.

Did anyone besides the family show face?
Uh. There was Fran, the housekeeper. Marta, Harlan's caregiver, good girl, hard worker.
Family's from Ecuador. And Wanetta - Greatnana, Harlan's mom.

Part of the 'script a day' 30 day challenge from ScreenwritingU.
Hadn't seen this movie beforehand so thought I may get lost at times, but I did not.
Ensemble cast and pacing was well done with the flashbacks and mystery combined to current day.
Humor was great, having had a brother named Hugh the Hugh joke especially made me laugh.
Looking forward to seeing this movie.

Knives Out, written and directed by Rian Johnson
Eight out of 10

To make a silly, wrong-sided joke, we can read the impressive names in the cast, with Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Christopher Plummer, Ana de Armas, Toni Collette, and then stop, for there is nothing else to say in favor of this motion picture…

Unless of course, we look at the long list of nominations and awards, including three for the upcoming Golden Globes, for the most important

Rian Johnson's screenplay for Knives Out is a fun twist on the whodunnit, by presenting the audience with what seems almost like too much information upfront, before disseminating the details that truly matter slowly throughout the film. By reading Johnson's screenplay, it's easier to note the little clues that pop out on rewatch, such as a New Yorker magazine in a suspicious place, or the way a person says a specific line. This is clearly a screenplay that has been worked over and over, with ...more

I couldn’t find a GoodReads entry for the “Hook, Line & Sinker” short movie tie-in book that the marketing team gave away for free in certain airports this year, so this is my logging for that book. I haven’t read the screenplay but I’ve seen the movie and loved it. The HL&S tie-in is an easy read but has echoes of the film (and is referenced by Noah Sagan) and was a fun way to spend my night reading.

Worth reading either before (if you don't mind spoilers) or after seeing the movie. The character descriptions alone were delightful, and it's so fun to see the little details that were in the script before shooting and which must have been added later.
