One of the most fearless films of the year, “White Lie” is the latest collaboration from Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis (Amy George, The Oxbow Cure, Spice It Up).
Katie, a dancer and performer born for the stage, proves equally skilled in perpetuating a charade that has everyone – including legions of crowdfunders supporting her and other cancer-related causes – convinced that she’s bravely battling cancer. But Katie isn’t sick and her girlfriend’s insistence on constantly being at her side and her father’s threats to publicly out her as a fraud are huge obstacles. As her story slowly begins to unravel, she disastrously decides to double down, unable to give up the real-life fantasy world she’s constructed.
