This review is from: Agatha [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Imaginative and well-made speculation as to what may have happened to Agatha Christie during the 10 days in which she disappeared in December 1926. Vanessa Redgrave is not one of my favourite actresses but she is superb here, playing the aristocratic yet very diffident first lady of crime, ill-at-ease with her own success. Timothy Dalton also shows what a diverse actor he is with his role of the starchy Colonel Christie, wanting to divorce Agatha so that he can marry his secretary Nancy Neele. Dustin Hoffman puts in a fun and exuberant turn as the American journalist who tails Agatha to Harrogate. The solution to the mystery is a bit over-the-top, but the actors pull it off with style.
