What is the Story of The Big Knife?
Set in the golden age of Hollywood, The Big Knife tells the story of successful movie star Charlie Castle, who is faced with a pivotal career-shaping decision: Should he renew his contract with the studio (and its manipulative chief Marcus Hoff) or heed his wife’s wishes and do away with Hollywood for good? As he struggles to make a choice, a struggling actress with insider knowledge of an accident involving Charlie may prove to be the most persuasive voice in his life.
