It is rare that a movie is released that I am interested enough to see at the cinema, rather than waiting to rent it. However, when I saw the trailer for Murder on the Orient Express, I knew that it would be wonderful to be able to see it on the Big Screen. Fortunately, my friend Kathleen was also interested in viewing it, so we went together!
What an opulent film! It was full of old Hollywood glamour with a star studded cast. I have not read the Agatha Christie novel that the movie was based on, so the story line was completely new to me. It has definitely piqued my interest in Christie's mysteries... I've only dipped my toe into her collection and would love to read more in the near future.
