Locally-Made Movie ‘The Good Lie’ Opening Friday

May 9, 2013 7:15 AM | Entertainment


Another made-in-Winnipeg movie is hitting the big screen beginning Friday.

“The Good Lie” tells the story of Cullen, a young college student who discovers after his mother’s sudden death that he was the product of a vicious rape.

Directed by Shawn Linden and starring Thomas Dekker and Matt Craven, Cullen sets out to track down his sinister biological father and learns that the truth can be far more bizarre than anything told around a campfire.

The flick opens at the Globe Theatre and the Carlton Cinema in Toronto tomorrow. Other Canadian cities will follow in the coming weeks.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Linden spent four years studying philosophy and film studies at the University of Manitoba, and then eight years working in the art department in the local film and television industry.
