Crooked House

A brand new adaptation of Agatha Christie's Crooked House created by Sony Pictures. Starring Max Irons, Gillian Anderson and Glenn Close, this smart adaptation is a chillingly good story.


In Agatha Christie’s twisted tale, the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch is investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather’s murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets. On the sprawling estate, amidst a poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy in a truly crooked house, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theatre actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man’s widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close).

Based on Agatha Christie's 1949 novel, Sony Pictures presents a brand new film adaptation of Crooked House directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner and written by Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price.

Crooked House aired in the UK and the US in 2017.
