Career 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.
Insider tip: “A taut thriller, The Good Liar keeps you guessing ’til its explosive end” (Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post). Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, adds: “This movie rattles along with terrific energy and dash and the flashback sequences show that it’s actually far more daring and ambitious that [sic] you might expect. It’s a great duel between McKellen and Mirren.” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: “Or to put it another way, walking in, you already know it’s going to be good. You don’t know that it’s going to be this much fun.” Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle: “The Good Liar is a pleasantly playful thriller hiding a seriously shady history close to its benighted heart.” Tim Appelo, AARP Movies for Grownups: “It’s an entertaining, flashback-fueled finale, and the stars are having such a blast the fun is quite catching. I can’t wait for them to do another movie together, and I’d watch this one again right now.”
