Lies Boys Tell, The

Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas stars as a cantankerous old travelling salesman who convinces his estranged son to accompany him on a journey of rediscovery and farewell.


Ed Reece is dying, and as far as his family is concerned, he should stay in bed and pass away with quiet dignity. But Ed’s not the sort of man to go quietly. He’s got some unfinished business to take care of.

Such as travelling halfway across America so that he can die in the bed he was born in. Such as making amends with his estranged, draft-dodging son, Larry, and reconciling Larry with his former wife. Armed with a sneaky sense of humour and a good dose of downright cussedness, Ed sets off on his final odyssey, taking Larry along for the ride – and hotly pursued by his furious family and the cops!

Hollywood ‘great’ KIRK DOUGLAS (Spartacus, Lust for Life) gives a terrific performance as an eccentric old man determined to revisit the milestones of his past and to reconcile himself with his feuding family in this superb comedy-drama, which earned an Emmy Award® nomination for Cinematography.

With a brilliantly witty script from the Oscar®-winning ERNEST THOMPSON (On Golden Pond), who also features in the cast, THE LIES BOYS TELL co-stars CRAIG T. NELSON (The District, Poltergeist), BESS ARMSTRONG (High Road to China) and veteran character actress EILEEN BRENNAN (Private Benjamin). The director is TOM McLOUGHLIN (Fatal Love).
