Benett/Dave Benett/WireImage) Directed by Bill Condon and based on the widely acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle, The Good Liar sees Ian play professional conman, Roy Courtnay, who sets his sights on recently-widowed Betty McLeish (Helen). 'Roy means to take it all,' the film's official synopsis explained. 'From their very first meeting, Roy begins plying Betty with his tried and true manipulations, and Betty, who seems quite taken with him, is soon going along for the ride.' 'But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes – revealing more insidious deceptions that will take them both through a minefield of danger, intrigue and betrayal,' it explained.
