From the team behind 2015’s wildly successful adaptation of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None comes “a dark, perfectly contemporary morality tale” (The Daily Telegraph, UK) set in 1920s London.

When glamorous Emily French (Kim Cattrall, Sex and the City) is brutally murdered in her home, all the evidence points to French’s young lover, Leonard Vole (Billy Howle, On Chesil Beach), to whom the heiress left her fortune. Ms. French’s
devoted housekeeper (Monica Dolan, The Casual Vacancy) proclaims Leonard’s guilt, but Leonard insists that his wife, enigmatic chorus girl Romaine (Andrea Riseborough, Bloodline, Birdman), can prove his innocence. As the scandalous crime goes to trial, solicitor John Mayhew (Toby Jones, Detectorists) finds that the case may be his undoing.

Played to perfection by an illustrious cast, this “brilliantly twisted” (Daily
Express, UK) drama shows that “Christie still has the power to give us
goosebumps” (Metro, UK).

Lots to love A beautifully shot adaptation. A great cast of heavy hitters and newcomers. It’s dark and sexy; an adaptation for modern audiences but sticking to Christie’s infamous twists and superior writing.

I loved this remake of Witness for the Prosecution I loved this remake of Witness for the Prosecution! It’s at once true to the spirit and story of the Agatha Christie classic but modern and darkly compelling. Kim Cattrall is everything you’d hope for in her portrayal of the independent and vulnerable Emily French and Toby Jones is powerful as the quietly suffering lawyer trying to redeem himself through the defense of the young WWI vet accused of murder (nicely played by Leonard Vole). And Andrea Riseborough is a delicious mystery throughout…

I thought that the Charles Laughton – Tyrone Power version (1957) was great but this adaption far surpasses that film Outstanding! I thought that the Charles Laughton – Tyrone Power version (1957) was great but this adaption far surpasses that film. Tops for acting, created atmosphere and dramatic impact! A must see, in my book…
