Agatha Christie, one of the world's most popular writers of detective fiction, utterly disappeared for 11 days in 1926. She was later discovered at Hydro Harrowgate, a spa in Yorkshire, England. More than 15,000 persons searched high and low for the novelist, who allegedly ran away after

her husband had told her he was leaving her for his secretary. Upon her return, Christie stated that she remembered nothing, such was the shock of her matrimonial break. That is the only story known. AGATHA is "an imaginary solution to an authentic mystery," speculating on what happened to

Christie during the time she was missing. More than succeeding as a mystery, the film works as a romance between Redgrave (as Christie) and American reporter Hoffman who is searching for her. Dalton, who would find fame as James Bond in THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (1987), plays Christie's adulterous

husband. Thanks to production/costume designer Shirley Russell (who received an Oscar nomination for her work here) and cameraman Vittorio Storaro, post-WW I Britain is beautifully re-created.
