In an isolated manor, an orphaned heiress must fight her guardian for her inheritance — and her life.

Lies We Tell  is a contained psychological thriller about a gaslit girl’s break for freedom. Stripped-down, gritty, and all-too-contemporary: this is not a frocks-and-bonnets period picture but a taut, propulsive, fight to the death.

Adapted from the classic novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu and directed by Lisa Mulcahy, starring the great granddaughter of Seán O’Casey, Agnes O’Casey (Ridley Road), David Wilmot (The Wonder), Holly Sturton (Smother) and Chris Walley (Young Offenders).

"A singular performance by young talent Agnes O’Casey in the lead role gives this pretty period piece a serrated edge." Screen International
