Six-time Academy Award® nominee Glenn Close (Best Supporting Actress: The World According to Garp, 1982, The Big Chill, 1983, The Natural, 1984; Best Actress: Fatal Attraction, 1987, Dangerous Liaisons, 1988, Albert Nobbs, 2011), Academy Award nominee Terence Stamp (Best Supporting Actor, Billy Bud, 1962), Max Irons (Woman in Gold), Stefanie Martini (Doctor Thorne), Emmy® winner Gillian Anderson (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, The X Files, 1993) and six-time Emmy nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) head the all-star cast bringing Agatha Christie's eponymous best-selling book to life when Crooked House debuts on DVD 28th February 2018 from Universal Pictures (UK).

Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Dark Places), Crooked House follows private detective Charles Hayward (Irons), who is invited to solve a gruesome crime where nobody is above suspicion, including Sophia (Martini), his client and former lover.

With two behind-the-scenes featurettes, fans are given an inside look at the making of the film. With twists, turns and a cast full of characters, it can be difficult to decipher who is truly the murderer. In Whodunnit? - The Characters of Crooked House, the cast explains who's who and explains their involvement in the larger mystery. Shot in a wide array of beautiful British stately homes, fans come to understand the decisions behind this impressive visual style as production designer Simon Bowles walks them through the design of the film in "Elegance & Innovation: The Design of Crooked House".

In Agatha Christie's most twisted tale, the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch is investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather's murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets.

On the sprawling estate, amidst a poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy in a truly crooked house, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man's widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close).

Based on the book by Agatha Christie, Crooked House was directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner from a screenplay by Julian Fellowes, Tim Rose Price and Gilles Paquet-Brenner. The film was produced by James Spring, Sally Wood and Joe Abrams and executive produced by Paul B. Edgerley, Tim Smith, James Swarbrick, John Story, Stewart Peter, Anders Erdén, Jay Firestone, Phil Hunt, Compton Ross, Sunny Vohra, Andrew Boswell, Will Machin, Natalie Brenner and Lisa Wolofsky.
