Lies We Tell, Mitu Misra’s new film starring Gabriel Byrne, Harvey Keitel, and Sibylla Dean, will have its world premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London on Thursday, September 21. A second screening is set for Saturday, September 30.

The announcement today via Twitter has Byrneholics everywhere excited to finally see this movie!

In addition, according to IMDB, the film will premiere in US and UK theaters on February 2, 2018. Publicity folks associated with the film tell me announcements about more film festivals will be coming soon.

Synopsis at the Raindance Film Festival page for Lies We Tell:

When his billionaire boss dies, Donald must destroy all evidence of his enigmatic mistress Amber. Amber’s past pulls Donald into a life-and-death showdown with her gangster cousin/ex-husband. Nursing his tragic past, Donald is plunged into a world of hypocrisy, betrayal and ultimately murder, leaving an honest man broken.

    • Angelle, the line-up at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival is HUGE and also WONDERFUL. I wish Lies We Tell could screen there. Does not look like it will, but their slate is still expanding, so let’s see what happens! <3
