Period mystery thriller directed by Tom George. Set in 1950s London, See How They Run (2022) follows a desperate Hollywood film producer set out to turn a popular West End play into a film. However, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell), and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan), take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Constable Stalker: Victim’s name is Leo Köpernick, sir. Seems he was killed in the costume store. And then he was deposited here. Staged, so to speak.
Constable Stalker: [as Stoppard gives her a look] Sorry, sir.
Petula Spencer: How much longer do you intend to hold us all hostage?
Mervyn Cocker-Norris: Or is that the idea? Gather all the suspects, and interrogate each of us in turn until the mystery’s solved.
Constable Stalker: [to Stoppard] Mervyn Cocker-Norris. Overrated playwright.
Mervyn Cocker-Norris: Celebrated playwright.
Constable Stalker: Oh, I’m so sorry sir. I can’t read me own handwriting.
Mervyn Cocker-Norris: We are no longer merely suspects. We are also potential victims.
Pierre: [to Stoppard] There was an incident.
Mervyn Cocker-Norris: [to Köpernick] I’ll kill you.
Constable Stalker: It’s as good as a confession.
Inspector Stoppard: Let’s not jump to conclusions, Constable.
Leo Köpernick: [to Woolf and Saville] What do we have here? Working late, huh?
Constable Stalker: [to Stoppard, referring to Woolf] He killed Köpernick to hush up the affair, case closed.
Constable Stalker: I’m doing it again aren’t I, sir? Jumping to conclusions.
Inspector Stoppard: Conclusions. Yeah. Little bit.
Constable Stalker: [to Stoppard] You’ve never heard of Richard Attenborough?
Dickie Attenborough: [to Stoppard] A real life detective.
Inspector Stoppard: [to Attenborough] I understand that you came to blows the night in question.
Sheila Sim: It was me, Inspector.
Constable Stalker: I arrest you for the murder of Leo Köpernick.
Inspector Stoppard: No, no, no.
Major Metcalf: We have a serial killer on the loose.
Constable Stalker: Police. Stand back.
Man: [as Stalker breaks down the door] He keeps a key under the mat.
Inspector Stoppard: So, what did he do that made you suspicious?
Dennis Corrigan: It wasn’t so much what he did, it was more the way he did it.
Inspector Stoppard: How did he do it?
Dennis Corrigan: Sort of suspiciously.
Inspector Stoppard: Right.
