The Screen Guide

THE BEAUTIFUL LIE is a grand, complex love story. It’s also an engaging, contemporary re-imagining of the greatest tragic romance of all time, Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. But THE BEAUTIFUL LIE is more than a great love story. It’s a sprawling saga of adultery, scandal, manners and mayhem – about the fates of three enmeshed families across three generations.
