A HAUNTING IN VENICE PODCAST
Has it ever crossed your mind how the engaging detective stories of Agatha Christie could be creatively adapted to a different setting and time? This is what we unravel in our latest episode where we navigate through the intriguing process of transforming Christie's Halloween Party from its original British countryside to the captivating canals of Venice, post-World War II. We are privileged to have Kenneth Branagh, the lead actor portraying the famous Poirot and the director of the film, as well as screenwriter Michael Green, who shed light on the nuances of this adaptation and their collaboration with Christie's estate and her great grandson, James Pritchard, in preserving the true essence of the story.
Our journey continues as we delve deeper into the storyline and themes of the film. We discuss the suspenseful transition from a seemingly harmless séance to a gruesome murder that pulls Poirot back into the world of crime and investigations. We further dive into on-set interviews and footage, shedding light on the film's supernatural elements, Poirot's amazement at human capabilities, and the exploration of a world beyond our own. Stay tuned as we analyze the performances of our stars, Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Oppenheimer, Avengers) and Michelle Yeoh, (Everything Everywhere All at Once, Crazy Rich Asians, ) and the depths of humanity they bring forth in their characters. We also hear from Jamie Dornan (Belfast, The Fall) Tina Fey (30 Rock, Mean Girls, SNL) Kelly Reilly (Yellowstone, True Detective) and we have clips from A Haunting in Venice.
Lastly, I give this weeks Bourbon shout out to my dear friend, Michael, and bask in the nostalgic journey of music featuring the all-female rock band Fanny, the legendary Neil Diamond, and Pink Floyd’s last album with the entire band intact, The Final Cut. We wrap up our episode with a tribute to sappy movies, discussing the comfort and relaxation they bring, a necessary guilty pleasure for many of us. Pour yourself a glass and join us in this insightful, entertaining, and intimate conversation.
