"McKellen and Mirren are irresistible in this mystery thriller with dashes of Patricia Highsmith, Patrick Hamilton and John le Carré"
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★
Career con man Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) sets his sights on his latest mark: recently widowed Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren). McLeish is worth millions, and Courtnay plans to take it all. But as the pair get closer, what should have been another simple swindle takes on the ultimate stakes.
Legendary actors Mirren and McKellen star together on screen for the first time in this gripping adaptation of Nicholas Searle’s acclaimed novel about the secrets people keep and the lies they live.
