Invited as a guest of honor by a famous brand of cognac celebrating its bicentennial anniversary, Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) returns to the hometown he escaped many years ago. Now an acclaimed and openly gay novelist, Stéphane is uneasy to be back and a chance encounter with Lucas (Victor Belmondo, who looks a lot like his famous grandfather, French icon Jean-Paul Belmondo), the son of his first love, upsets him even more.
Memories come rushing back of a passion that could never be revealed between Stéphane (portrayed as a teenager by Jérémy Gillet) and his classmate Thomas (Julien De Saint Jean), the son of local farmers.
Now, Stéphane is determined to find out what happened to Thomas, without betraying their secret.
Hailed as the “French Brokeback Mountain,” Lie With Me is a stunning and emotional drama, shot on location in the beautiful Southwest of France. Directed by Olivier Peyon (Tokyo Shaking, Virtual Cinema 2021)
Philippe Besson’s eponymous autobiographical novel is available in English, translated by actress Molly Ringwald!
Not Rated (sex scenes, nudity, adult situations).
Original Title: Arrête avec tes mensonges
A magnificently sad and hopeful movie, very lifelike in how it handles disappointment, and surprisingly sexy while doing it. Sarah Manvel - In Their Own League
Drenched in a hazy autumnal glow, this beautifully shot tale of first love set in France is a cinematography treat. Laura Stott – The Sun
