When a family comes together for the holidays, the head of the household is found murdered upstairs with a knife in his back. The telephone has been cut, no-one has reception and snow blocks their escape.
Left to their own devices, eight women reveal their claws, flaws and reasons for killing in this deliciously dark comedy. Each has a motive. Each has a secret. One of them is guilty. But which one?
Chic, sensual and dangerous, Robert Thomas’ wicked Huit Femmes is transported to the deepest, darkest wilds of the English countryside by Donald Sturrock’s elegant new translation. Made famous by Francois Ozon’s all-star film this is “The Best Whodunnit in years.” GQ
