The Swindle – inspired by the 2019 film The Good Liar

A cagey conn artist pursues a widowed oxford professor – but nothing is as it seems when it comes to this mark. Career con artist Roy Courtney (Sir Ian McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Dame Helen Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life. To match the slow-burn nature of this cerebral thriller, The Swindle serves up a tricky combination of Mezcal with the complex notes of Cointreau to deliver a smoky Margarita con job that is so much more than what it seems.
