Welcome to the greatest murder ever staged! It is the West End of London in the 1950s, and plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play have come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and his eager rookie sidekick, Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan), take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theatre underground. The more they investigate the mysterious homicide, the more they realize that they do so at their own peril.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: See How They Run may not do itself many favors by asking for Christie comparisons, but this is still one fun whodunit.

Comic mystery keeps you guessing; drinking, violence, peril.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that See How They Run, which stars Saoirse Ronan, deconstructs the whodunit by creating a fictional murder mystery while filmmakers work to adapt an actual Agatha Christie play into a movie. It's a brilliant way of introducing the elements of writing a murder mystery. Expect violent moments: Strangling, shooting, and struggles are intense, and there's some blood. There's kissing and drinking (sometimes to excess); language includes "goddamn," "horses--t," and references to infidelity. It's set in the 1950s, and the cast of the play-within-the-film is all White, but filmmakers make nods to diversity in the form of a Black screenwriter, a mother taking on a career in a traditionally male field, and the suggestion of a gay relationship. Classic cinema fans will eat this one up like buttery popcorn, as the real cast of the 1953 West End production, including the likes of legendary actor Richard Attenborough, are made into characters/suspects.
