What’s It About?
Bestselling novelist Agatha Christie disappeared for eleven days in 1926. The mystery of her disappearance has never been fully explained. Agatha is a fictional depiction of what may have occurred.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Both Vanessa Redgrave and Dustin Hoffman give solid performances here, but the story that they’re stuck in is unfortunately lacking. The script presents one potential theory (out of countless possibilities) for what happened to Agatha Christie during her lost eleven days, but the theory they present is unappealing and kind of depressing. I didn’t like it. I felt like the mystery the writers tried to tell in Agatha was a pale comparison to the thrillers spun by the real-life namesake.
