Between now and next Thursday, January 20th, we here at Cinematical will be doing all we can to bring you up to speed on the films premiering at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Today we have an exclusive teaser video for 'The Lie,' which was co-written and directed by Joshua Leonard ('Humpday,' 'Blair Witch Project'), who also stars as a guy who tells a really nasty lie to get out of work. The film co-stars Jess Weixler, Mark Webber, Alia Shawkat, Jane Adams and Kelli Garner. For more on 'The Lie', as well as its Sundance screening times, make sure you hit up the film's official festival page.

We asked Mr. Leonard to intro the video you're about to see, so we'll let him take over from here ...


"I've been asked not to use any curse words in this introductory paragraph to our teaser video for 'The Lie'. To that end, I promise to do my best.
