Whodunit stories never get old, as proven by this 2019 quirky mystery-thriller. When wealthy old bachelor Harlan Thrombey gets murdered, accusations point to his trusted young nurse Marta Cabrera. As Detective Benoit Blanc investigates, he finds that Harlan’s relationship with his greedy relatives is strained. They’re all willing to bite each other for a piece of the massive fortune that Harlan left behind.

What happens when a love story that was once sweet starts to become cold and…well, blue? What happens when two people, once madly in love, feel like they are no longer a match? Those are the questions surrounding the heartbreaking 2010 drama Blue Valentine. What happens when two destitute and insecure lovers whose own personal struggles start causing a divide in their relationship? The film is difficult to watch, but definitely worth it.
