CAREFUL WHO YOU WISH FORWith an outstanding line-up of stars including Sarah Snook, Rodger Corser, Sophie Lowe, Benedict Samuel, Gina Riley, Celia Pacquola and Dan Wyllie, The Beautiful Lie is a contemporary Australian reimagining of one of the greatest ever relationship dramas, Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. The Beautiful Lie is about love and all that goes with it; family and fidelity, seduction, commitment, jealousy, envy, obligation and mad passion. Love that saves and love that destroys.
The feature follows AFTRS graduate short "PULL"
Directed by Christopher Stollery
If you believe in love at first sight, then how soon is too soon to confess all your flaws and problems? Love requires surrender - but in the art of seduction, is honesty really the best policy?
