Movie Mondays: The Last of Sheila
Lately I’ve been really into murder mysteries, especially the “who dunnits!” This particular film has a lot of personality, style, and a very interesting plot. A movie producer’s wife is killed in a hit-and-run accident, and one year later, he rounds up the possible culprits for a weekend of parlor games on his yacht.
All of the friends and enemies who show up for the weekend are suspicious as to the producer’s motives, but manage to have a good time playing elaborate murder mystery games as they dock at different cities for the day.
Things get out of control when someone is killed for real, and the crew set their minds to figuring our who the murderer is, before the police can make it out to the island to investigate.
Some of the plot twists are pretty predictable, but I was definitely still guessing what was really going on up until the end of the film. I definitely recommend this movie, especially if you’re the type of person who enjoys Agatha Christie stories. as this one definitely reminded me of her style of drama, set in the 1970’s.
