“The Good Liar” pairs Oscar winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”) and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen (“Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “Gods and Monsters”) on the big screen for the first time. 

Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “Gods and Monsters,” directed and produced the film from a screenplay by Jeffrey Hatcher (“Mr. Holmes”), based on the widely acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle. 

Career con artist Roy Courtnay (McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (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. 

“The Good Liar” also stars Russell Tovey (TV’s “Quantico”) and Jim Carter (TV’s “Downton Abbey”).

★★★★ – The Guardian (Peter Bradshaw) 
“This mystery thriller is outrageous and Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen are irresistible”

★★★★ – Times (UK) 
“Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen are the cinematic couple that we never knew we needed. Until now.”

★★★★ – Deadline Hollywood Daily 
“Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren are superb in a twist-filled suspense thriller that is worthy of Hitchcock.

★★★★ – Daily Mirror (UK)

“quietly compelling and twisty thriller”

★★★★ – London Evening Standard
