Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Comprising small, near-perfect scenes played out largely at dinner tables and on couches, "The Lie" wonders if it's possible to rewrite lives and remake choices.
Rotten: [A] thinly amusing tale with not-especially-appealing characters.
Fresh: Adaptation of an esteemed New Yorker story lightens the tone successfully while capturing the ugliness of a panic-inspired misstep.
Fresh: It doesn't try too hard, but what "The Lie" is working at, in its unassuming, amusing way, is a mini-portrait of growing pains in a time of extended adolescence.
