The Good Liar (15)
The Good Liar | 2019 | UK/USA/Germany
Director: Bill Condon
Starring: Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Russell Tovey
Genre: Crime, Drama
Con man Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellan) sets his sights on the recently widowed Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren), who is worth millions. However, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with very high stakes.
McKellen switches nimbly from old-geezer affability to calculating schemer as the trap falls into place. Mirren, on the other hand, exudes a certain intelligence and fortitude rather at odds with her character’s apparent gullibility. Moreover, what we learn about his unsurprisingly shady past takes the story into an elaborate and unexpected past.
A thriller full of twists and starring two of our most cherished luvvies.
