Mitu Misra’s directorial debut “Lies We Tell”, based on a Bradford girl of Pakistani ethnicity, will screen at MAMI film festival on 17th October at PVR ICON in Andheri, Mumbai. The film starring Gabriel Byrne and Harvey Keitel is shot by Santosh Sivan. Director Mitu Misra who lives in Bradford says, “Lies We Tell is, on the surface, about a man forced to confront an underworld that he has stumbled into – but I can tell you now it is also about a strata of British society, that lives by its own laws, that really exists. Donald’s story is something I have experienced – an experience I wanted to portray the only way I knew how – through film.”
Lies We Tell is an unflinching British thriller about loyalty, betrayal, and revenge. The film revolves around a trusted driver, who must deal with his dead boss’s Muslim mistress, her dark past pulling him into a life-and-death showdown with her notorious gangster cousin/ex-husband.
Lies We Tell stars Gabriel Byrne, Sibylla Deen, Mark Addy, Jan Uddin, Emily Atack and Harvey Keitel and will have an international release on 2nd February, 2018.
