See How They Run

See How They Run ★★★

Highly enjoyable piffle that will be more funny the more you know Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap (especially if you performed in it in school). Yes, it stands in the shadow of Wes Anderson and Knives Out, but so what? The MVP here is Saoirse Ronan, who is absolutely charming and doing tiny comic bits of business. Both writer and director come from British comedy and this has that feeling of a Channel 4 movie yd see one night in the early '90s and then tell everybody about, only to find out nobody has seen it and never would b/c C4 was bad at re-runs and streaming didn't exist. But I saw it. And it was fine.
