Tom Georges See How They Run is now available in theaters, so I caught up with Sam Rockwell to discuss making the Agatha Christie-style whodunnit. The film follows a seasoned detective (Rockwell) and an ambitious rookie (Saoirse Ronan) investigating the murder of a film director who was planning on adapting a hit play into a film.
Rockwell talked about what drew him to the film, how he got the role, how Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan recorded the dialogue so he could learn the accent, how they got to film at the Old Vic and The Savoy Hotel because of COVID, and what they should watch if theyve never seen his work.
Watch what he had to say above, and below is what we discussed, the teaser and synopsis for See How They Run.

After the film's director is murdered, plans for a film adaptation of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, they discover themselves caught in a bizarre whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious murder at their own risk.
