Previously titled ‘Between The Earth And Sky,’ ‘The Lie’ is a 2018 Canadian film that follows a set of recently separated parents as they come together to cover up a potentially damning crime that their teenage daughter has committed. The story of ‘The Lie’ opens with the rock musician father driving Kayla (Joey King) to a weekend ballet event when they see Kayla’s friend Brittany on the snow-covered roadside and give her a lift. Brittany begins to flirt with Kayla’s father, and the two girls exchange some catty comments, normal teen/mean girl behavior. They make the car stop in the middle of nowhere for a loo break in the forest, but when the girls don’t return, Kayla’s father gets worried.
He goes after them and finds only Kayla sitting on the edge of a bridge, strangely subdued. Kayla reveals that she pushed Brittany off the bridge in a fit of impulsive rage. Horror stricken, the two of them return home and relay the whole incident to Kayla’s mother. The parents put aside their own differences and try to come up with a lie that would save their daughter from going away for second-degree murder. Gradually, the husband-wife duo indulges in increasingly crazy acts of crime, all in the name of protecting their daughter, who, by the looks of things, is not all that much affected or guilty. Directed by Veena Sud (‘The Killing’), ‘The Lie’ is a remake of a German film called ‘We Monsters.’ Here are the locations where ‘The Lie’ was filmed!
