Although Belgium’s premiere sleuth Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) plans a spectacular Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer, the trip turns into a terrifying search for a murderer after a picture-perfect couple’s honeymoon is cut tragically short. Set against a sweeping landscape of Giza pyramids and desert vistas, DEATH ON THE NILE features a stunning ensemble cast. Based on Agatha Christie’s beloved novel, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy is filled with wicked twists and turns that will have you guessing until the shocking finale.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Old-fashioned to a fault, the solidly entertaining Death on the Nile is enlivened by its all-star cast and director-star Kenneth Branagh's obvious affection for the material.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Death on the Nile is based on Agatha Christie's same-named mystery novel and is a follow-up to 2017's Murder on the Orient Express. The central figure is a glamorous heiress (Gal Gadot) who marries her best friend's fiancé (Armie Hammer). Racy moments include passionate kissing, references to sex, and the honeymooning couple grinding against each other while fully clothed. As the movie's title suggests, there's a good deal of murder in the story (involving knives and guns), and while it's all meant to shock and startle, only one death is accompanied by blood and packed with emotion. Suicidal ideation and behavior are present, and there's a flashback to wartime battlefield violence and a close-up of a grisly wound (accompanied by a positive message about acceptance). Characters drink throughout, and there are references to smoking. Women are portrayed as intelligent and shrewd, and supporting characters have been updated in a way that reflects a more diverse world than the one Christie wrote about.
