ODEON says...
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

Reviewer: Jo & RickDate: 2019-11-14

OK film. Cleverly written with a twist. Loved Helen Miram's performance..... superb!!

Intriguing tale

Reviewer: charles0207Date: 2019-11-10

Intriguing tale of deception, betrayal and revenge. Led by the nose into a romance scam, we then follow the twists and turns of a plot with flash backs to its wartime and post-war origins. Watchable throughout.
