Olivier Peyon, 2023, France, 100 min.
Based on the bestselling French novel, Lie With Me is a story about lost love and the importance of being true to yourself. Established author Stéphane Belacourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) returns to his beautiful hometown to promote a renowned local cognac distillery and deliver a keynote speech. Stéphane doesn’t blend naturally with the bourgeoisie in attendance because he has always been open about his sexuality and because he hasn’t had a drop to drink in years. He is surprised to meet Lucas (Victor Belmondo), the son of his first love. After all those years Lucas’s resemblance to his father brings the memory of his secret steamy affair vividly back to life.
