Charade was praised by critics for its screenplay and the chemistry between Grant and Hepburn. It has been called "the best Hitchcock movie Hitchcock never made".
Dragged into a white-knuckle, cat-and-mouse game to unearth $250,000 allegedly stolen by her estranged and recently deceased husband Charles, Regina Lampert, an elegant American interpreter living in France, crosses paths with dashing perfect stranger Peter Joshua. And as if the terrible sense of loss weren't enough, a trio of ruthless cut-throats picks up the sweet scent of easy profit, bent on finding the lost cash first. As suave but enigmatic Peter dices with death to protect Regina before the situation spins out of control, little by little, a timid relationship forms; however, money corrupts. Now, fragile alliances and dangerous encounters spell trouble, and Regina can
only count on herself to unravel the secret. But what are the chances of getting to the bottom of the mystery when trust falters?
