Saoirse Ronan Investigates a West-End Conspiracy in ‘See How They Run’

Words: Ciarán Howley

The film has been described as a cross between Wes Anderson and Knives Out.

Saoirse Ronan is set to take the lead as a hapless detective in a new murder mystery film from director Tom George.  

The quadruple Oscar-nominated stars as Constable Stalker alongside Oscar winner Sam Rockwell, who plays her partner in crime (solving) Inspector Stoppard.

Set in 1950s London, the pair find themselves at the heart of a conspiracy in London’s West End, as the cast of a doomed stage-to-screen adaptation are picked off one by one. Stalker (Ronan) is eager to solve the case much to the chagrin of her world-weary superior played by Rockwell.

The release of the trailer has sparked comparisons to the work of Wes Anderson for its idiosyncratic tone and eye-catching visual sensibilities, as well as Rian Johnson’s Knives Out and the novels of crime-fiction writer Agatha Christie.

Most bizarrely, the trailer teases Harris Dickinson in the role of acclaimed actor Richard Attenborough, brother to the biologist broadcaster David Attenborough, and is even a suspect in the investigation. The stacked cast list was revealed in an exclusive with Variety and includes Adrien Brody, Reece Shearsmith, Ruth Wilson, David Oleweyo, Shirley Henderson and more.

Catch See How They Run in Irish cinemas from September 9.
