VOD Release: White Lie

July 22, 2020

By John Corrado

The Canadian drama White Lie, which had its world premiere at TIFF last year, is being released digitally and on demand this week on a variety of platforms.

The film, which is the best one yet from young Toronto directors Calvin Thomas and Yonah Lewis, follows a young woman named Katie Arneson (Kacey Rohl) who shaves her head and convinces people she has cancer in order to raise money for herself.

As I wrote in my review from TIFF last year, White Lie “is a dark and moody Canadian drama that is engaging and even suspenseful to watch as we wait for the truth to finally explode.” I was a fan of Rohl’s fiercely dedicated performance, portraying a character who isn’t meant to be likeable and even borders on sociopathic, as well as the gritty look of the film. Overall, it’s an intriguing character study that is worth checking out.

Film Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)

Release Date: July 21st, 2020 (VOD)
