Argylle

Matthew Vaughn | 2024 | 135 MINS
USA
An introverted spy novelist is drawn into the activities of a sinister underground syndicate in this hugely entertaining film by Matthew Vaughn (‘Kingsman’).

In Detail

Bryce Dallas Howard is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie.

But when the plots of Elly's fictional books - which centre on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate - begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past.

Accompanied by Aiden (Sam Rockwell), a cat-allergic spy, Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly's fictional world and her real one begins to blur. The great cast features Samuel L. Jackson, Dua Lipa, Bryan Cranston and Henry Cavill as Argylle.
