The Good Liar - Das alte Böse
USA, 2019 | Length: 110min | FSK: 12 | Director: Bill Condon Cast: Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Jim Carter

Directed by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Bill Condon (»Gods and Monsters«, »Kinsey«, »The Greatest Showman«) and based on the acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle, this exciting thriller follows career con artist and marriage swindler Roy Courtnay (McKellen; »The Lord of the Rings«), who can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Mirren; »R.E.D.«) 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. A classic Hitchcock thriller, but with a shockingly modern twist, as well as fabulous and nuanced performances by legendary actors McKellen and Mirren as an exquisite match.

Der gealterte Trickbetrüger und Heiratsschwindler Roy (McKellen) lernt online die wohlhabende Witwe Betty (Mirren) kennen und plant einen letzten großen Schwindel. Als er sich völlig unerwartet jedoch zu ihr hingezogen fühlt, beginnt für Roy die Gratwanderung seines Lebens.
