Rian Johnson’s Knives Out but set in Singapore

Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc – Educated overseas. Tries to use Singlish when talking to others but sounds like a Mediacorp actor instead.

Ana de Armas as Marta Cabrera – The Filipino maid who does all the real work and tolerates the vaguely racist things she overhears. Under-eats at mealtime because she’s afraid she’ll look too comfortable.

Jamie Lee Curtis as Linda Drysdale – Tells you how many calories is in that pineapple tart you’re eating without you asking. Gives you your angbao only after talking to you about Herbalife.

Michael Shannon as Walter Thrombey – Votes opposition because he thinks the PAP doesn’t help the poor. Only donates to charity when the President’s Star Charity Show is on. Gives very generous angbaos to the maid. Talks to her in bastardized Tagalog even though she’s fluent at English.

Chris Evans as Ransom – “You’ve seen my videos so you know I’m an internet millionaire”

Don Johnson as Richard Drysdale – Complains about there being too many foreign workers but his company is entirely dependent on them. Gives his employees angbaos containing coins. Wears reflective Oakley sunglasses even when it isn’t sunny.

Toni Collette as Joni Thrombey – Bigwig in the local arts scene. All her artist friends are exclusively Chinese and she hasn’t noticed.

Katherine Langford as Megan “Meg” Thrombey – Rails against capitalism on Facebook. Says she donates her angbaos to charity. She doesn’t.

Jaeden Martell as Jacob Thrombey – Talks to no one at family gatherings. Thinks videogames are getting too political. Likes anime but keeps it a secret.
