PoisonMovie on Netflix

An Englishman in India is attacked by a snake, and his partner and a doctor rush to save him.

Why watch this film?

The fourth short film in Wes Anderson's Netflix tetralogy inspired by Roald Dahl. "Poison" also has a simple premise: a man wakes up, feels that there is a snake next to him in his bed, and his partner and a doctor work to save him. With entertaining performances by Benedict Cumberbatch, Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley, and Ralph Fiennes, the short film strikes a good balance between Dahl's eccentricity and Anderson's, bringing out the best of both authors.
