About this movie:
There is A wonderful movie about the time Agatha Christie disappeared for 11 days and solved a real murder.
The plot uses elements of classic detective novels, and also contains references to Christie's novels, such as The Man in the Brown Suit, the title of which appears as a headline in a newspaper clipping. The murder of Florence Nightingale Shore, and the character of Mabel Rogers, are based on real people and events.
In 1926, Agatha Christie finds herself in a difficult place when her writing is thwarted by predictable plot lines and her unfaithful husband pushes her for a divorce she does not want. As she searches for an alternative creative route to revive her novel development, she is approached by a woman, Mabel Rogers, seeking help in solving the murder of her partner, Florence Nightingale Shore, who had been bludgeoned on a train.
