Georgetown is a 2019 crime film directed by Christoph Waltz in his feature directorial debut. Waltz stars alongside Vanessa Redgrave, Annette Bening and Corey Hawkins.

It had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27, 2019.


An ambitious social climber becomes the main suspect in his wealthy (and much older) wife's death. Based on a true story.



It was announced in May 2015 that Christoph Waltz would make his directorial debut with The Worst Marriage in Georgetown, in which he'd also star as the main character Ulrich Mott.[2]

In May 2017, Vanessa Redgrave was cast in the film as the wealthy socialite Mott marries in order to up his social status.[3] Annette Bening joined the film, now titled Georgetown, in September, with filming commencing in Toronto between August 3 and September 16, 2017.[4][5]


It had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27, 2019.[6] Shortly after, Variance Films acquired distribution rights to the film.[7] The Hollywood Reporter praised the film, noting that "it's the kind of serious but broadly appealing, modestly scaled picture that people love to say doesn't exist any more."[8]
