THE GOOD LIAR
Thursday 2 January 2020 at 2.30pm (Subtitled) and 7.30pm
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 film pairs Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen on the big screen for the first time, and the combination is “irresistible” The Guardian.
