Murder on the Orient Express (12A)

An all-star cast takes centre stage for this lavish and thrilling adaptation of one of the greatest mysteries ever written.

This Agatha Christie classic is swept into the 21st century with impressive production values and fantastic Old Hollywood-style art direction.

Director Kenneth Branagh stated that the ‘classical qualities’ of 70mm evoked the right period feeling due to the increased texture and depth. The result is an incredibly slick composition of sweeping visuals and intimate character portraits, capturing the essence of the story perfectly and making for an unmissable widescreen experience.

This film is screening as part of Celluloid Saturday.
