Bill Condon directs Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren in the new drama, The Good Liar, which is based on the acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle.
The film tells the story of career con artist Roy Courtnay (McKellen) who 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.
Joining McKellen and Mirren are Russell Tovey and Jim Carter. The Good Liar is scheduled for a mid-November release.
