Enter the cops and a private detective who try to unravel the tangle of clues and misdirection and mystery, as the family starts to implode.
This is a good, old-fashioned murder caper with enough twists and turns to keep you involved and wondering whodunit. I like that it was filmed low-key, without a lot of bright colors to distract from the plot and the performances. I am not a big fan of Daniel Craig, but he did well here, although he needs to practice that Southern drawl a bit more before using it again. I was particularly impressed by Ana De Armas; she really held up her part, the glue of the narrative, as it were.
I highly recommend this one, but the kids might find it boring. There are no scenes after the credits.
