The Good Liar (15)

Director Bill Condon. Drama/Thriller

Con artist Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life. Mirren and McKellen star together on screen for the first time in this suspenseful drama about the secrets people keep and the lies they live. “It's Mirren and McKellen who make it sing. When the focus is on them as a couple, they're a joy. They are the new Hepburn and Tracy.’ Times

Starring Helen Mirren, Russell Tovery, Ian McKellen, Jim Carter

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A great film. A bit violent in places and it does get quite dark, but a brilliant tale and superbly acted, as you would expect.

Thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining, great performances from Mirren and McKellen

Very good film, well acted with twists and turns in the plot. Unexpected ending.
