Ahead of its November 15 theatrical release, Queerty hosted a crowd of queer creators and readers for an advance screening of The Good Liar at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles.
And at the expense of spoilers (we would never!), this film has more twists and turns than Britney Spears and Drew Barrymore’s careers combined.
Acting gods Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen star in the new thriller, from Oscar-winner Bill Condon. The Good Liar follows a con-Juan named Roy (McKellen) who romances a wealthy older woman named Betty (Mirren) with hopes of stealing her money. Things take a complicated turn when Betty’s hunky grandson (Russell Tovey) begins to suspect Roy’s ulterior motives, and Roy begins to develop real feelings for Betty.
Just before the film, we queried the crowd on the worst lies they’ve told in romance.
The Good Liar is currently playing in theaters everywhere.
