Movie Reviews

To Lie: A power-packed double entendre
Jason | Backwater, Alabama | 03/14/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Drugged with GHB, Ros Tyler (Eve Best) has no recollection of her weekend activities. When she awakens, however, she discovers that she has been raped, and her roommate has been murdered. Will (Andrew Lincoln) is assigned to the case as Lead Investigator. When Will and Ros slowly find attraction to one another - she for the security and he for the frailty - their desire for justice, and vindication, leads them towards a difficult and illegal action.

Lie With Me does a superb job of bouncing a viewer's perception back and forth despite some slow moments. Support and derision can easily be directed at nearly every character; protagonist and antagonist are interchangeable. Despite the somewhat early villain reveal (towards the middle of the second act), the drama fleshes out well enough to hold attention to the end.

Most important about this movie is the dichotomous approach to victims of rape and victims of false rape accusations. The politically correct approach seems to always paint the male as a villain, but as we learned with the Duke "rape" case, an accusation shouldn't be a public conviction. While amnesia played a role in this movie's plot development, that is not always the case, and there should be definite repercussions for those who ruin another's life. Determining the truths and lies are the keys to any rape case, and the mysteries behind each are as integral parts of reality as they are this movie.

Overall average, this British suspense doesn't stand out in any specific way, but it is probably worth a rental.
