A GOOD LIAR
Jan 24 - 27
British acting icons Helen Mirren and Ian McKellan join forces in this dramatic and playful Hitchcock-style mystery. She is a vulnerable, recent widow with a considerable nest-egg, while he is a career con-man; they meet through an online dating website. He intends to bilk her out of her inheritance, and they get along famously – she even allows him to move into her house, to the dismay of her savvy grandson – but what should be an easy swindle becomes unexpectedly complicated. Director Bill Condon (Kinsey, Gods and Monsters), working from a screenplay adapted by playwright Jeffrey Hatcher from the best-selling novel by Nicholas Searle, has made a charming, satisfying thriller.
