Agatha ★★½ 1979 (PG)

A speculative period drama about Agatha Christie's still unexplained disappearance in 1926, and a fictional American reporter's efforts to find her. Beautiful but lackluster mystery. Unfortunately, Hoffman and Red-grave generate few sparks. 98m/C VHS . Pam(ela) Austin, Dustin Hoffman, Vanessa Red-grave, Timothy Dalton, Helen Morse, Tony Britton, Timothy West, Celia Gregory; D: Michael Apted.
