Movies about the rich and famous have been around since the early days of Hollywood, and they’re going stronger than ever this fall, but in a brand-new way. Movies about the downfall of the upper class are everywhere right now and these three are being showered with praise from all sides.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
Just like the first Knives Out movie, Glass Onion is exploring the demise of a group of rich and privileged, but pretty fun and colorful characters. Benoit Blanc is coming back to solve a murder mystery taking place on a secluded private island of a tech billionaire.
The Menu combined two pretty popular emerging genres we’re seeing everywhere these days. It’s a culinary thriller about the downfall of the rich, which follows a group of wealthy people attending a fancy dinner prepared by a celebrity chef, who has something pretty unorthodox in store for them.
Triangle of Sadness
Triangle of Sadness created a lot of buzz at this year’s Cannes Film Festival when it collected Palme d’Or. It centers on a group of travelers on a luxury cruise for the ultra-rich, including a fashion model celebrity couple, whose trip turns upside down once they get stranded on an isolated island.
