The Good Liar (2019)
Saturday 14th December 2019
The Good Liar, released on DVD and Blu-ray 16th March 2020 from Warner Home Video, pairs Oscar winner Helen Mirren (The Queen) and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Gods and Monsters) on the big screen for the first time. Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Gods and Monsters, directed and produced the film from a screenplay by Jeffrey Hatcher (Mr. Holmes), 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. 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.
The Good Liar also stars Russell Tovey (TV's Quantico) and Jim Carter (TV's Downton Abbey).
Greg Yolen also served as producer, alongside Condon. The executive producers were Richard Brener, Andrea Johnston, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Anjay Nagpal, Jack Morrissey, and Nick O'Hagan.
The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Tobias Schliessler (Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Holmes), production designer John Stevenson (BAFTA nominee, Burton and Taylor), editor Virginia Katz (Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Holmes), and costume designer Keith Madden (miniseries Patrick Melrose, Mr. Holmes). The music is composed by two-time Oscar nominee Carter Burwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Carol).
