Lying is a 2006 American independent experimental film starring Chloë Sevigny and Jena Malone, Leelee Sobieski, as well as Henry Gummer. It was directed by video artist M. Blash. It premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival Directors Fortnight and had a limited US release in 2008, with a DVD release following in May 2009. The film was given a small theatrical re-release in September 2009. While the film follows a fairly loose, ambiguous narrative, it focuses on a group of acquaintances who spend the weekend together at a remote country house; the situation becomes complex throughout the days, though, as one of the women turns out to be a pathological liar.
