After making the film festival rounds in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and India, Lies We Tell is headed to another film festival this month and then, in February, to the big screens in Great Britain and the United States!
Foyle Film Festival
Set in Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, the Foyle Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary with a wide array of films and starts tomorrow, November 17. Lies We Tell screens on November 23 and, schedule permitting, writer Ewen Glass and writer/producer Andy McDermott will introduce this screening.
Check out the complete schedule, which includes an appearance by noted director Jim Sheridan and a 30th anniversary screening of Withnail and I, starring our favorite friend of Byrne, Richard E. Grant, who will be on hand for this event.
LIES WE TELL Will Be Released Across UK & US Cinemas 2nd February 2018.
LIES WE TELL: Stars of Pulp Fiction and Miller’s Crossing are brought together for Mitu Misra’s unflinching, award-winning British thriller about loyalty and revenge, a Northern Noir in the tradition of Mike Hodge’s Get Carter and Mike Figgis’ Stormy Monday.

When his billionaire boss Demi (Harvey Keitel) dies, chauffeur Donald (Gabriel Byrne) is given one final job – to wipe out any evidence of Demi’s relationship with his mistress, the enigmatic and beautiful Amber (Sibylla Deen). Donald’s task soon unravels when Amber’s life is threatened, and he finds himself her reluctant protector. Unwittingly drawn into a dangerous urban underworld, he encounters dark, harrowing practices, and a sinister underworld figure who will test him to his very limits.
LIES WE TELL is a unique, gritty thriller that portrays an ordinary man confronting extraordinary circumstances. The cast includes Golden Globe winner Gabriel Byrne (IN TREATMENT, MILLER’S CROSSING), Oscar-nominated screen legend Harvey Keitel (PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS), Mark Addy (GAME OF THRONES, THE FULL MONTY), Nicholas Farrell (CHARIOTS OF FIRE), BAFTA-winner Gina McKee (OUR FRIENDS IN THE NORTH), Toyah Willcox (QUADROPHENIA), Emily Atack (THE INBETWEENERS), Sibylla Deen (HOME AND AWAY), and Jan Uddin (SHANK).
