Parent & Baby Screening: Murder on the Orient Express (12A)

A still from Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient express starring Johnny Depp

Kenneth Branagh brings Agatha Christie's ever-popular whodunnit back to the big screen in this star-studded adaptation of the murder mystery classic.

What starts out as a lavish, luxurious train journey through Europe quickly turns deadly, forcing legendary detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) to solve the case and find out whodunit. 

With no clear motive, each of the thirteen strangers stranded on board is a suspect. It’s a fiendishly difficult puzzle to solve, and Poirot’s now in a race against time to catch the killer before they commit another murder or make their escape. 

Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
