About Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
The sequel to the smash 2019 hit Knives Out, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery brings back intrepid detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) for another wildly entertaining mystery rounded out by an outstanding ensemble cast in this whodunit.
Secluded on a private Greek island, Blanc meets a distinctly disparate group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron (Ed Norton) for their yearly reunion. Among the guests are Miles' former business partner (Janelle Monáe), the sitting Connecticut governor (Kathryn Hahn), a cutting-edge scientist (Leslie Odom Jr), a leading fashion designer (Kate Hudson), and a major influencer (Dave Bautista). What begins as a nostalgic vacation soon runs afoul of political scandal, corporate espionage, blackmail, and murder.
Glass Onion will not have a major theatrical run. This is a unique chance to experience this film as it should be seen—in the world-renowned theatrical environment of IU Cinema and with the expert insights of the film’s composer.

"Glass Onion adopts the sturdy structural underpinnings of the Agatha Christie-like whodunit, and presents them with an ingenious mix of postmodern irony and bona fide awe." — David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Like its predecessor, it’s whip-smart, joyful, and more than a little bit mischievous. It’s nothing less than perfect crowd-pleasing counter-programming for folks craving something that isn’t either superhero or horror-related.” — Todd Gilchrist, AV Club
"Glass Onion is bigger and more precisely designed than Knives Out, but what makes it a more satisfying movie is that it sits with its characters more rather than immediately showing off their decay." — Alison Wilmore, Vulture
