The cast of Crooked House talk about the film

Agatha Christie’s Crooked House has been adapted for film for the first time with Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson and Max Irons leading the ensemble cast. Watch Agatha Christie’s grandson Mathew Prichard and cast members Glenn Close, Stefanie Martini and Amanda Abbington, talk about Crooked House in this short, sweet clip.

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).

Crooked House is set to air in the UK on Channel 5 Sunday 17th December. It will open in theaters in the US 22nd December and is available to stream now.
