A Kind of Murder movie quotes narrate the twists and turns of the psychological thriller about a man who wishes his wife dead right before she turns up actually dead. Andy Goddard directed the film which Susan Boyd adapted into a screenplay from the book The Blunderer by Patricia Highsmith. A Kind of Murder opened theatrically in the United States on December 16, 2016.
In A Kind of Murder, successful architect Walter Stackhouse (Patrick Wilson) and beautiful wife Clara (Jessica Biel) host a party in their home. Clara takes note of a particular guest, Ellie (Haley Bennett), someone Walter thought nothing of. But when Ellie arrives back at their home while Clara is away, Walter begins a romantic affair with her. Suspicious, Clara follows Walter one night and catches him with Ellie.
Some time later, Walter receives a phone call informing him of Clara's death. While Walter was unhappy in his marriage and wished that Clara would disappear, he proclaims his innocence in Clara's death. But Walter's behavior strikes a chord with Detective Lawrence Corby (Vincent Kartheiser), Ellie and others around him making Walter the prime suspect in Clara's death.
A Kind of Murder movie quotes give a peek into the film just as quotes from movies released around the same time do including for Collateral Beauty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Miss Sloane, and Office Christmas Party.
