With such amazing actors you know the movie is going to be a good ride, in The Good Liar you’re just never quite sure who is driving. Helen Mirren (The Leisure Seeker) and Ian McKellen are excellent in their cat and mouse roles. Russell Tovey adds the right amount of counter point to the leads. I don’t want to say much more so that you can enjoy it as much as I did.
