Career con man Roy Courtnay sets his sights on his latest mark: recently widowed Betty McLeish, 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.

“The Good Liar is an intriguing look at the dark side of human nature but often with a glimmer of macabre humor. It’s a thriller with a Hitchcockian feel, weaving in elements of mystery, crime and a human drama. The best part of watching a movie like this is that you never know what’s going to happen – or why. What excites me most is how audiences will piece together this intricate puzzle with all its twists and turns. And at its heart are two beautifully complex characters played by two of the greatest actors of all time, at the top of their form, who can keep you guessing like a classic till the very end. [...] It was all wickedly fun.”
