SYNOPSIS

Upon agreeing to be the brand ambassador for a famous cognac celebrating their bicentennial, novelist Stéphane Belcourt returns to his hometown for the first time in many years. Once there, he meets his first love’s son, Lucas. Memories come rushing back to him: irrepressible attraction, bodies becoming one in the heat of desire, a passion that can never be revealed… His first love’s name was Thomas. They were 17.

Adapted from Philippe Besson’s book Arrête avec tes Mensonges, originally published in France by Editions Julliard in 2017, which won the 2017 Maison de la Presse award and the 2017 Psychologies Award for inspiring novels. English language translation, Lie with Me copyright 2019 by Ringwald Inc.
