In the suspenseful Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears, Phryne Fisher (Davis) embarks on an exhilarating new journey of mystery and mayhem through exotic 1920s British Palestine and the opulence of grand London manors. Fisher frees a young Bedouin girl, Shirin Abbas (Izabella Yena, High School Lover) from unjust imprisonment in late 1920s Jerusalem, and unravels a wartime mystery concerning priceless emeralds, ancient curses and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.
The eagerly-anticipated film features series regular Page as close associate and her longtime romantic admirer Detective Inspector Jack Robinson and Margolyes as Aunt Prudence, as well as new cast additions Daniel Lapaine (Catastrophe), Rupert Penry Jones (Spooks), andJacqueline McKenzie (Deep Blue Sea). Filmed on location in Morocco, including at the extraordinary sand dunes on the edge of the Sahara Desert, and in Melbourne’s magnificent historic mansions, the movie made its U.S. premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on January 4 with three sold-out screenings.
Based on the popular book series by Kerry Greenwood, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries has delighted audiences worldwide with its fanciful escapades, gleaming Jazz Age period detail, high production values and a sterling ensemble cast led by Davis as the sophisticated, glamorous “lady detective” with a knack for solving tough crime cases– armed with her pearl-handled revolver and vivacious charm while leaving a trail of admirers in her wake.
