See How They Run
Show Date: April 13, 2023 7:30 pm
See How They Run – is centered on Agatha Christie’s long-running play ‘The Mousetrap’, with a whodunnit buried inside an actual whodunnit. It not only gives Tom George’s film many genres to satirise — it’s a backstage drama, crime potboiler, police procedural all wrapped up in a farce.
Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) sets out to solve the murder of an infamous film director (Adrian Brody) while forced to take an eager young Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) with him.
The real joy of the film is the rapport between the investigating ‘plods’ and there’s a running joke about coppers named after playwrights. Rockwell brings grizzled, Walter Matthau-type charm to the inspector, but it’s Ronan who shines brightest as an over-eager, by-the-notebook constable, star-struck by the suspects and taking everything at face value.
A really fun murder mystery that succeeds at creating an engaging mystery and solid gag rate bolstered by some surprisingly dark and mature themes.
