Storyline:

Based on the acclaimed New Yorker short story by T.C. Boyle, THE LIE is a candid, yet charming look at how a seemingly harmless and momentary lapse of judgment can lead to life-altering calamity. Lonnie (HUMPDAY’S Joshua Leonard) and Clover (TEETH’S Jess Weixler) were once young idealists — destined to change the world, until an unanticipated pregnancy derailed their plans. Instead of making their mark, the pair finds themselves trapped in a bourgeois nightmare, hosting BBQ’s and arguing about organic diapers. Clover is in her final year of law school, while Lonnie, stuck in a nine-to-five routine, remains in a daze about the artistic lifestyle they were forced to abandon.

Deciding he needs some time away from his soul-sucking job to renew his stalled aspirations, Lonnie calls in sick and creates a shocking lie to justify his absence. Swept away in a series of misadventures beyond his control, he attempts to close the Pandora’s box, but finds that it is too late. As Lonnie’s crudely constructed lie begins to unravel, THE LIE takes us on a journey of self-discovery as it astutely examines what it means to be an adult, and the steps we all take to get there…eventually.
