Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 20th at 6:45pm for Sleuth at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
One of the most surprising and satisfying mystery films of the 70s, SLEUTH pits the formidable Olivier against the upstart Michael Caine in a battle of wits. Olivier plays Andrew Wyke, the aging husband of a woman who is the lover of Milo Tindle (Caine). Wyke invites Tindle to his country home and proposes a scheme to bilk the insurance companyÂ… but what are his real motives?
