Event Information

The Good Liar pairs Oscar winner Helen Mirren and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen on the big screen for the very first time in a gripping drama from director Bill Condon, 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. He plans to woo her and then take all her money, but 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, one with twists and turns around every corner.
