Storyline

Gilby Smalls is having a meltdown. He's just been fired from his job, lost his apartment in a fire and his girlfriend gave him the boot. And it's only Wednesday. Now, at the ripe old age of thirty-something, he is forced to move in with May, his booze-swindling man-obsessed mother. This is the last straw. Gilby's life is bleak until best friend Kevin drags him to a family get-together, where he meets Rachel, Kevin's very beautiful but very married sister. Rachel is the very thing Gilby needs to get his life back on track. Desperate to impress her, Gilby starts to weave a web of lies; one bigger than the next. Now in a sticky mess, Gilby is forced to face the uncomfortable truth about himself before he can find a way out of his very own Lies. The Truth About Lies explores the potent role lying plays in relationships and life with some surprising results!

Dynamic and Outrageously Funny
8 November 2017 | by lindsmeadSee all my reviews

A dynamic film on relationships, family drama and self discovery, The Truth About Lies is an outrageously amusing romantic comedy that I cannot get enough of. Fran Kranz (Gilby) and Odette Annabelle (Rachel) did a stupendous job playing their characters and produced incredible cast chemistry between one another. Besides the fact of this film having an enticing unconventional love story, I appreciate the other elements such as coming to terms with your identity and facing heartbreak. The "fake it till you make it" theme of the movie was also one of my favorite parts. It reminded me of films like Catch Me If You Can and Just Go With It. In my opinion, this film was very well written and had a refreshingly original storyline. While it contained a lot of situational humor, I was still able to relate to it because of the family drama and the indecisive relationship issues with cheating and scandalous love affairs. I'm pretty sure there's at least one aspect people could relate to in this film. Hats off to director Phil Allocco, extraordinary job.
