In-person introduction by director Rian Johnson
Like everyone else, the world’s greatest detective (Daniel Craig returns as Benoit Blanc!) found himself unable to get motivated during the pandemic. What he really needed was a big case to solve, and writer-director Rian Johnson delivers in glorious fashion. The grand tradition of movie murder mysteries, updated for the tech-bro era, is in full effect with a starry ensemble featuring Janelle Monae, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, and Kate Hudson social-distancing to death on a Greek Island. No matter how many layers of the Glass Onion you think you've peeled away, there's yet another waiting to be revealed.
