Sleuth

A FILM BY Kenneth Branagh

A grand exercise in watching two marvelous actors rip into some crackling dialogue. It's the thespian equivalent of jousting, and it's fascinating to watch.
-Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
Here, dry and clipped, biting and savage, Caine goes for the kill.
-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
It's like Deathtrap"" crossed with ""Cribs"" as staged by Stanley Kubrick.""
-Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Synopsis

The Anthony Shaffer play originally brought to the screen in 1972 gets the remake treatment in this updating that finds Michael Caine stepping into the role of the brilliant thriller writer portrayed by Laurence Olivier in the original, and Jude Law following in Caine's footsteps as the young hairdresser who steals the literary giant's wife, only to find himself subsequently swallowed up in an elaborate revenge scheme.
