The Good Liar

The Good Liar (Bill Condon, 2019) wr. Jeffrey Hatcher from the novel by Nicholas Searle; Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Russell Tovey, Jim Carter, Mark Lewis Jones; release 15 November

This turned out to be a plot-driven to a much greater than I imagined. I was expecting a character study of two older people exploring their relationship, and looking forward to some great acting from the two very experienced leads.

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, even laughing out loud at one of the revelations, but for me it did not interfere with the growth of my understanding of Roy and Betty.

It is, therefore, in my opinion, an excellent film, with all aspects contributing.
