The razzle-dazzle cast of Christoph Waltz (Spectre), Vanessa Redgrave (The Aspern Papers), Annette Bening (Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool) stars in the true-crime drama Georgetown.

Waltz leads as Ulrich Mott, an eccentric and smooth-talking social climber who seems to have everyone in Washington, D.C. wrapped around his finger. But when his wealthy, well-connected and much older wife (Redgrave) turns up dead in their home, her daughter Amanda (Bening) suspects Ulrich may not be all that he seems as the police investigation begins to uncover a larger deception that goes far deeper than anyone ever imagined.

Directed by leading man Waltz, Georgetown was poorly received in theaters back in May (it had been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years before being rolled out). Still, the R-rated film at least has its cast going for it, which may warrant a look-see.
