The Invention of Lying

British cinema

Ricky Gervais is one of my favourite British comedians and this film is a great vehicle for his talents.  In a world where everyone can only tell the truth he learns to lie, he seizes the opportunity for personal gain.  The results are hilarious,  but like most of the best films it also makes you think.  I’ve always known how awful it would be if everyone told the truth all the time.  Every day we tell those little white lies, and to be honest, they make the world a nicer place.
