Just love when I bump into unexpected film homerun as I did with “THE GOOD LIAR” starring the seriously iconic British acting duo of Helen Mirren & Ian McKellen
Who knows if I saw a preview and really not recalling any specific word of mouth. Attended a 4:15pm weekday show AND IT WAS PACKED. Specifically only the 1st 2 rows were available. I am 60 and yes DEFINITELY the youngest in the audience…by a good bit. All good…loyal fans.
At least 1 of these 2 legends was in every movie shot and when together, you knew you were getting a cinematic treat. Was it a con?;, was it a sincere relationship between 2 widowers,?; or something else?
Really not sure why this movie was rated R but that’s not my call. The magic here is watching the amazing acting faces of these 2 ubers. Watch the eyebrows, watch the corners of the mouth; watch the minute facial recognition and what a joy! Add in old school, throw back music to support this game of “cat & mouse” and simply let “The Good Liar” wash over you.
