Knives Out

If you love Agatha Christie and her mystery stories (and any intriguing and mind boggling mystery stories for that matter), we highly recommend “Knives Out.” This movie stars an amazing cast, including Christopher Plummber, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Ana De Armas, Michael Shannon, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and LaKieth Stanfield.

Finally, his wandering ends when he returns home to Buckingham Palace.

Martha: A Picture Story

This documentary is a must-see for those who are into history and the arts.
