Fling AKA Lie To Me In Theaters
"Fling" AKA "Lie To Me" - By all appearances, Samantha (Courtney Ford) and Mason (Steve Sandvoss) are the picture perfect couple: young, attractive, successful, and madly in love. At her sister Allison’s (Ellen Hollman) idyllic spring wedding, Samantha, a twenty-something fashion designer, finds herself irresistibly drawn back into the arms of her ex-boyfriend, James (Brandon Routh), a surprise wedding guest. Meanwhile, Mason, a published novelist just shy of thirty, spends a flirtatious evening culminating in a steamy hot tub encounter with his best friend Luke’s (Nick Wechsler) 18 year-old sister, Olivia (Shoshana Bush). Carefully sneaking out of James’s room, Sam is startled by Mason and confesses her affair. Mason responds by relating his evening’s adventures as well. Exhausted, they climb into bed together, this night merely being another chapter in their constantly evolving open relationship.
A few days after the wedding, Sam finds herself agreeing to go on a date with James. Mason encourages her, citing his own experiences, but Sam is apprehensive about this new stage in their relationship. As the weeks progress, Sam starts to develop stronger feelings for James, whose level headedness is a welcome contrast to Mason’s immaturity. While tolerating Sam’s new relationship, Mason continues to secretly see Olivia behind her overprotective brother’s back. At first it all seems like fun and games until things start to get more and more complicated. As secrets begin to manifest in their open relationship, Sam and Mason are forced by surprise events to finally take responsibility for their actions and make important decisions that will affect their respective futures. "Lie To Me" AKA "Fling" is a unique twist on the traditional love story addressing concerns that every couple deals with: honesty, jealousy, commitment, maturity, understanding and ultimately our capacity for love.
