The greatest cast of suspicious characters ever involved in murder.
In 1935, when his train is stopped by deep snow, detective Hercule Poirot is called on to solve a murder that occurred in his car the night before.
|nudity||A woman is wearing a dress that reveals some cleavage. A man is reading a book, and another man asks if the book is about sex.|
|violence||The film revolves around a murder and the solving of it. The actual murder is shown in flashback at the end of the film. Since is was a stabbing, the murderer is shown holding the knife and plunging it downward into the body with a "thunk", but the actual impact of the stabs is not shown. The body is shown briefly with several stab wounds that are surrounded by some blood. The victim's eyes are wide open, as if he had reacted to the stabbings, despite his having been drugged into unconsciousness and not screaming because of it. Several people talk about murder and killing. A person is shown putting sleeping powder into a man's drink.|
|profanity||A few d*mns, Oh my G*d, and Oh G*d are said.|
|alcohol||People drink wine, but not to excess. Some smoking.|
|frightening||The flashback scene where the murder is committed will probably be intense for young kids. Overall, the film is very talky and not very violent. It should be okay for anyone 10 or 11 and older, though it most likely won't interest them.|
