Best-selling author of detective fiction Andrew Wyke (Oscar ® winner Laurence Olivier) lives a wealthy but lonely life in a grand 16th century mansion. Receiving a visit from hairdresser Milo Tindle (Oscar ® winner Michael Caine), who happens to be his wife's lover, Andrew is clear from the onset that he is aware of the infidelity, but keen to turn the misfortune so it benefits all three parties. Hatching a scheme to involve Milo in a cunning robbery against himself in order to claim insurance monies in lieu of potential alimony, Andrew puts into a play high-stakes game of dark deceptions where nothing is as it seems and the endgame could mean murder.

Directed by Oscar ® winner Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), adapted from Anthony Shaffer's (The Wicker Man) award-winning stage play and nominated for four Oscars ®, Sleuth is an intelligent thriller with a twist in the tail that you'll never see coming.
