Based on the same-name novel by Agatha Christie. Christmas 1954. Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. Old wounds are reopened for the Argyll family after learning that Jack, the black sheep of the clan, may not have killed the Argylls’ tyrannical matriarch and that one of them may be the real murderer.
The story starts with a seemingly happy family, getting thru the dead of mother and one of the adopted siblings,who died in the prison. In just 3 episodes we are told a very interesting tale of love, betrayal and family secrets. And slowly one by one the secrets start to come to life. I loved the slow suspense and how well it was portrayed.
I’m very happy with the cast, they did a great job portraying the life of a dysfunctional rich family in the 50s. Bill Nighy as the Leo Argyll was amazing,he truly steals the show!
Would I recommend?
Yes! Most definitely! It’s such an amazing adaptation of this novel. And in true Agatha Christie fashion, you will be guessing who did it until the last minute.
