The Invention of Lying Takes Truth-Telling to New Heights (trailer)

by Ashley Cooper

2 October 2009

 

In an alternate world where everyone tells the truth, an unpopular, unlucky writer named Mark (Ricky Gervais) discovers the ability to lie. He begins to realize the power of his words as his life changes for the better and people around him begin to take his word as absolute truth. Mark then has to ask himself about the consequences of lying as his biggest stories get him fortune and fame, but not the good graces of the woman in his heart (Jennifer Garner).
