Dangerous Lies

When the elderly man she cares for dies, a newlywed woman (Camila Mendes, Riverdale) and her husband (Jessie T Usher, The Boys) become the unexpected recipients of his estate - one that carries life-threatening consequences - in this Netflix thriller.

After losing her waitressing job, Katie Franklin (Mendes) takes a job as a caretaker to a wealthy elderly man in his sprawling, empty Chicago estate. The two grow close, but when he unexpectedly passes away and names Katie as his sole heir, she and her husband Adam (Usher) are pulled into a complex web of lies, deception, and murder. If she's going to survive, Katie will have to question everyone's motives - even the people she loves.

The familiarity of the title, the premise and the cast will all help to thrust it to big numbers, I imagine, and I’m sure there are plenty of others like this on the way: clumsily titled, scrappily written and easily consumed. I just wish those lies had been a bit more dangerous …

The film is a sleek package, with cinematographer Ronald Paul Richard delivering lots of insinuating bird's eye views and Hitchcockian low angles, accompanied by the brooding notes of James Jandrisch's score with occasional whispery vocals. But would it be too much to ask for at least one performance with a little flavor?
