About Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Benoit Blanc returns to peel back the layers in a new Rian Johnson whodunit.

This fresh adventure finds the intrepid detective at a lavish private estate on a Greek island, but how and why he comes to be there is only the first of many puzzles.

Blanc soon meets a distinctly disparate group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron for their yearly reunion.

Among those on the guest list are Miles’ former business partner Andi Brand, current Connecticut governor Claire Debella, cutting-edge scientist Lionel Toussaint, fashion designer and former model Birdie Jay and her conscientious assistant Peg, and influencer Duke Cody and his sidekick girlfriend Whiskey.

As in all the best murder mysteries, each character harbors their own secrets, lies and motivations. When someone turns up dead, everyone is a suspect.

Returning to the franchise he began, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Rian Johnson writes and directs Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and assembles another all-star cast that includes a returning Daniel Craig alongside Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.

Age Rating of Glass Onion: What Ages Can Really Watch This One?

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is rated PG-13 for language, violence, sexual content, and drug use.

So can your teens and tweens watch Glass Onion?

Parents Guide: Is Glass Onion Appropriate For Kids Under 13?

The biggest issues are the topics of the movie (murder mystery is definitely not for little kids!) and language.

Since sex and nudity were not big factors, we think mature kids as young as 11 with an interest in the genre could handle Glass Onion.

As long as parents don’t mind the language, they should be good to go with this one.
