Highly Suspect Reviews: The Good Liar

The Good Liar Movie Review


Two of our most beloved and seriously classy 70+ actors team up for this con-thriller film by director Bill Condon. Ian McKellen and Hellen Mirren should be considered national treasures (I don’t care if they’re not Americans, NATIONAL TREASURES) and McKellen worked with Condon on the wonderful Mr. Holmes and Gods and Monsters. And it’s McKellen trying to con Mirren while wooing her…or is she conning him? Who conned who(sing to AC-DC for maximum effect)? What could POSSIBLY go wrong here? Well, a lot, as it turns out. Listen to Chris, Beau, Jen, and Frank navigate their way through this film.



STARRING: Hellen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Russell Tovey, Jim Carter, Mark Lewis Jones, Céline Buckens, Laurie Davidson
