Coinciding with the release of the new theatrical adaptation from Kenneth Branagh, Acorn features the DVD/Blu-ray release of the acclaimed and star filled classic adaptation of the world renowned mystery novel, AGATHA CHRISTIE’S DEATH ON THE NILE on September 29, 2020. While vacationing in Egypt, Poirot (David Suchet, His Dark Materials, Decline & Fall) intervenes when a jilted woman harasses her former friend, but the river cruise still turns deadly ($19.99, Amazon.com).
While vacationing in Egypt, Poirot (Suchet) meets the beautiful Linnet Ridgeway (Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns, A Quiet Place), a wealthy British heiress on her honeymoon. Linnet requests his help, as she is being stalked by a former friend (Emma Griffiths Malin, The Forsyte Saga), who accuses Linnet of stealing her boyfriend (JJ Field, TURN: Washington’s Spies, Ford v Ferrari). Poirot declines to get involved in the quarrel, even as all four of them embark on a Nile cruise together. But when a murder occurs aboard the vessel, Poirot must turn his little gray cells from relaxation to investigation.
The outstanding cast also features Daniel Lapaine (Catastrophe), David Soul (Starsky & Hutch), Judy Parfitt (Call the Midwife), and Barbara Flynn (Cranford, Cracker).
