A Haunting in Venice follows world-renowned detective Hercule Poirot to Italy to unearth the mystery of a young girl’s death and a supposedly haunted house! Over the last six years Kenneth Branagh has quietly put together an incredibly entertaining trilogy of Agatha Christie’s works, each film highlighting a different and integral aspect of Christie’s writing. With a smaller and less high-profile cast, Branagh focuses more on the intimate details of the characters and their backgrounds without fear of A-listers all competing for screentime. Branagh continues to perform double duty as director and star, finding more self-assurance in both roles and delivering the most accurate version of Poirot in his tenure.
