Career con man Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) sets his sights on his latest mark: recently widowed Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren), who is worth millions. And he means to take it all. But as the two draw closer, what should have been another simple swindle takes on the ultimate stakes.

Legendary actors Helen Mirren (Oscar winner for The Queen) and Ian McKellen (two-time Oscar nominee for Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and Gods and Monsters) star together on screen for the first time in this suspenseful drama.

Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Gods and Monsters, directs The Good Liar from a screenplay by Jeffrey Hatcher (the excellent and underrated Mr. Holmes), based on the widely acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle.

Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Lewis Jones, Phil Dunster, Nell Williams, Lily Dodsworth-Evans, Michael Culkin, Bessie Carter, Celine Buckens, Laurie Davidson, Julian Ferro and Aleksandar Jovanovic also co-star in the drama.

The film is produced by Greg Yolen and Bill Condon. Richard Brener, Andrea Johnston, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Anjay Nagpal, Jack Morrissey, and Nick O’Hagan executive produce.

The music is composed by two-time Oscar nominee Carter Burwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Carol).
