I might be lying

Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) is a widow in her 70s who lives in a home full of tasteful furniture in a boring suburb of London. She’s sweet, polite, and very stylish. The opening scenes move between her and Roy (Ian McKellen) filling out the user questionnaire on a senior dating website. They tell each other a lie or two, with Betty checking the box that says “non-drinker” between sips of her wine.  Roy, is revealed to be a dangerous and coldblooded con man with multiple schemes, not a charming and frail widower.  Twists and turns abound,
