Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures is a fully dramatised 90 minute film telling the remarkable true story of Agatha Christie; the queen of crime and the best selling novelist of the 20th century. Hardly any film exists of this famous writer. Christie kept her life and her world a mystery but she did tell stories about herself, in her fiction and autobiographical writing. It is these that A Life in Pictures uses to bring the author to life. Young Agatha Christie is played by Olivia Williams, the author in her later years is played by Anna Massey. And every word they speak in the film is Christie's own.
