Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen star together on screen for the first time in this suspenseful drama about the secrets people keep and the lies they live.
Career con artist Roy Courtnay (McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Mirren) online. She is worth millions… and Roy plans to take it all. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life. ‘Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter and ‘Being Human’s Russell Tovey round out this thoroughly British game of cat and mouse. Based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Searle.
