Agatha Christie's this detective fiction first published in 1949 and this is its first film adaptation. Haven't read the original novel yet, so can't tell how well they have adapted it here but found it pretty entertaining with great production value and great cast including Christina Hendricks, Gillian Anderson (couldn't recognize her first!), Glenn Close, Terence Stamp and Julian Sands. May be because it wasn't one of her popular Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple stories, there wasn't much charms of solving the mystery with clue by clue. Still it was enjoyable as it also offered one of her signature & most engaging mystery format...a gorgeous mansion of a wealthy Britt family and the house full of suspicious characters who each may got his/her own motive for the murder(s) and of course, with a nice surprise at the final revelation; particularly this story came with a real shocker!
