What Is the Story of The Lying Lesson?
The Lying Lesson takes place in a coastal town in Maine in 1981. Legendary film star Bette Davis arrives at a small cottage she intends to purchase for retirement. During her first night there, she runs into local Missy Bodine. The two strike up a friendship, and Davis allows herself to become dependent on the down-on-her-luck, awkward young gal; that is until Davis realizes Missy is not who claims to be. As more time passes and more information comes to light, the audience is left wondering: who exactly is lying to whom.
