We all love a classic ‘whodunnit’, don’t we? The mystery, the intrigue, and the suprises. There’s something incredibly immersive about watching a murder mystery unravel and Tom George’s See How They Run ticks every box. What makes See How They Run stand out is that it’s a homage and a pastiche of the genre. More than that though, it’s also a parody. It’s a giant concoction that plays around with the genre, while also adhering to its rules. Set within the West End’s run of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, See How They Run is a murder mystery… set within a murder mystery. What’t not to love?
We had the absolute priviledge of talking to the film’s director Tom George, and it was an utter treat. Learning about the filming process and the ideas that inspired such a story really added a lot to the experience. We can’t wait for you guys to dive into this fun and gripping mystery. Searchlight Pictures will be bringing the film to the big screen from Friday 9th, September. Make sure you check it out.
In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after the film’s Hollywood director is mudered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit with the glamorously sordid theatre underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.
