Writen and directed by Bill Condon (, Pierce Brosnan stars as Charles Lattimore, an author and lecturer of the mystery novel. Lattimore begins the new school year at the same institution where his ex-wife (Dey Young) teaches. Lattimore’s life is turned upside down when a student of his is found dead and he becomes the prime suspect.
“Murder 101” is surprisingly a solid and involving mystery for a television film. It is probably the best television film Brosnan ever made.
The twists and turns are frequent and Brosnan is stoic as he always was before Bond finally lassoed him. I am a strong fan of the pre-Bond Brosnan.
What I liked is that the film starts off with a sort of “Dead Poet’s Society” styled movie then begins to fracture and evolve into a mystery with the death of a student. It is very solid and worth a look for mystery buffs.
