Knightley's first feature film role came in this Agatha Christie-inspired potboiler. Set on the French coast in the 30s, a British detective (Adrian Dunbar) is investigating the murder of his boss, which brings him into contact with the bizarre Graves family.
Keira plays the young version of Celia Graves (Gabrielle Anwar, in older form), getting a taste for the period vibe that would define some of her biggest future successes. Glamour rating? The period setting adds a modicum of razzle-dazzle.
