A celebrated novelist reminisces about his secret teenage romance during a nostalgic return home
Celebrated novelist Stéphane takes a trip down memory lane to the sun-splashed summer of his first love. As a shy teenager he had fallen for Thomas, a rough-and-tumble boy from their small picturesque town. Now, 30 years later, Stéphane returns home for a book tour and meets his former lover’s grown son who is searching for answers about his deceased father.
Adapted from Phillipe Besson’s beloved novel, LIE WITH ME is a timeless tale of love found and lost that will sweep audiences away on Stéphane’s wave of nostalgia and questions of what might have been. Even tragic love stories have magical moments — and this one’s full of them.
