When 80-year-old conman Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren), he plans to take her for everything she's got. But as the two become close, Betty's grandson (Russell Tovey) grows suspicious about the old man's motives, turning what should be a simple swindle into a battle of wits. The Good Liar, in the hands of director Bill Condon— proves deliciously ripe material for Mirren and McKellen, adapted from the bestselling novel by former British intelligence officer Nicholas Searle. There’s joy in watching two flawless performances from these much-loved veteran actors, relishing every nuance of their characters, and every moment of their time on screen..—Empire “A classic Hitchcock thriller, but with a shockingly modern twist. And fabulous and nuanced performances by McKellen & Mirren”. Beyond the Trailer“The pleasure of The Good Liar, and it’s a major one, is the chance to watch Mirren and McKellen act together in a cat-and-mouse duet that turns into an elegant waltz of affection and deception.” VarietyCast Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Russell Tovey
