Burbank, CA, January 2 – Read between the lies when “The Good Liar” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. Legendary actors Helen Mirren (“The Queen,” “Hitchcock”) and Ian McKellen (“Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “Gods and Monsters”) star together on screen for the first time, in this smart and suspenseful thriller about the secrets people keep and the lies they live.

 

The Good Liar” was directed by Bill Condon (“Gods and Monsters,” “Chicago”) from a screenplay by Jeffrey Hatcher (“Mr. Holmes”), based on the widely acclaimed novel of the same name by Nicholas Searle. The main cast also includes Russell Tovey (“The History Boys,” TV’s “Quantico”) and Jim Carter (TV’s “Downton Abbey,” “Shakespeare in Love”).

 

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

 

The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Tobias Schliessler (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Mr. Holmes”), production designer John Stevenson (“Burton and Taylor”), editor Virginia Katz (“Beauty and the Beast,” “Dreamgirls”) and costume designer Keith Madden (“Patrick Melrose,” “Mr. Holmes”). The music was composed by two-time Oscar nominee Carter Burwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “Carol”).

 

New Line Cinema presents, in association with BRON Creative, a 1000 Eyes Production, a Bill Condon Film, “The Good Liar.”

SYNOPSIS

 

Consummate con man Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren), worth millions. And Roy means to take it all.

 

From their very first meeting, Roy begins plying Betty with his tried and true manipulations, and Betty, who seems quite taken with him, is soon going along for the ride. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes—revealing more insidious deceptions that will take them both through a minefield of danger, intrigue and betrayal.
