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!

Modern Day When Harry Met Sally
17 November 2017 | by jlsh-99373See all my reviews

Phil Allocco knocks it out of the park with a film that emphasizes a romantic and comedic tale of lies and relationships. The film shows the true dynamics of relationships as the main character weaves a complex web of lies to get a girl out of his league to fall for him. The acting styles of Fran Kranz and Mary Elizabeth Ellis along with Odette Annable contribute to the hilarity of this film as we witness the main character's, Gilby, misfortune come to fruition. The movie is hilarious, quirky, and meaningful. It is a good reminder that in life and love, honesty is most important. The cast chemistry and setting in New York City add to the romanticism of this film and the story behind it. If you liked When Harry Met Sally, 500 Days of Summer, or Bridget Jones Diary this is the movie for you. I would very much recommend this for a cozy night in with your significant other!
