See How They Run: Charlie Cooper & Director Tom George Talk Reinventing The Whodunit

BAFTA-winning director Tom George is bringing a whodunit like you’ve never seen before.

With a five star cast including Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell, Adrien Brody, Harris Dickinson, David Oyelowo, Charlie Cooper, and Ruth Wilson, See How They Run is the brilliant result of a crime mystery mixed with a film noir and a comedy, a satire and an hommage to all these different genres.

In the 1950s in the West End of London, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is still one of the most popular plays on stage. Hollywood’s director Leo Kopernik (Adrien Brody) is adapting the hit show on the big screen, but his dream is crushed when he is brutally murdered. World War Two veteran Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and novice Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) team up to solve the mysterious case.

Thanks to its brilliant writing and a script by Mark Chappel, the comic timing, and the suspense, See How They Run will be a real delight for murder mystery fans. And if you love Wes Anderson, some shots might very well remind you of something we could have seen in The Grand Budapest Hotel. However, Tom George and Mark Chappel completely take on and reinvent the whodunnit genre with this multi-layered story in their own unique, original way.

Leo Kopernik’s opening monologue and recurring voice-off throughout the movie are just as hilarious as it is necessary to prove that See How They Run is not your traditional huis-clos murder mystery, solved thanks to one attention-to-detail skilled inspector. Whodunits are great, but when they look like See How They Run, they prove that this beloved and well-known genre can still surprise us in the best way possible.

Tom George explained: 

It was a chance to take the whodunit, which is such a familiar story type for an audience, and then find a way to put our own unique twist on it. And not just in terms of the plot being something that we’ve never seen before, but the opportunity to combine the thriller element and the comic.”
