Murder on the Orient Express

Kennth Branagh does best when doing what he loves best – acting and directing!  He knows how to make a good film and deliver interesting characters, although perhaps sometimes a bit too slick. Love that he tipped his hat to older black and white films in his staging. His plays his character just right – lovable despite being impeccable.  Surrounded by a good cast, he keeps their their talent a bit silo-ed, lending itself perfectly to the story.  As one of the few my age who never saw the original, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the mystery unfold and playing the who done it game. A great escape! Definitely date night worthy.
